Resolution on Establishing a Web Site to Advertise Graduate and Research Programs throughout the SUNY System
The SUNY System has a wide variety of graduate programs presented by the Research Centers and by the Comprehensive Colleges. One of the priorities of the system is to recruit students from many different geographic locations including New York State, nationally and internationally. Having a central location that describes the numerous graduate and research programs available throughout the system and that has a URL of campuses by which more information is available is needed. In the past, SUNY published a publication that described such programs. The cost of such a paper publication today is considerable and it would be difficult to keep it current.
Having a central website would help all of campuses with graduate programs.
We understand that Central Administration is currently working on such a web site. It is important that a high priority be given to this project and that the University Faculty Senate receives regular reports on the progress of this project.
BE IT RESOLVED THAT the University Faculty Senate recommends to the Chancellor that a web site describing graduate and research programs in the SUNY system be completed and updated regularly.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED THAT reports of the progress of the web site project be provided regularly to the University Faculty Senate.
