The Power of SUNY's Six Big Ideas represent areas where SUNY, with focused resources and expertise, can make a tangible difference for the State of New York. The pages that follow translate our Six Big Ideas into condition measures, processes, and outcomes that we think drive A Competitive New York.
- SUNY and the Entrepreneurial Century - Entrepreneurship is to the knowledge economy what the assembly line was to industrialism. In higher education, federal research dollars are the fuel, and by increasing our ability to capture funding we are able to create more jobs in New York. SUNY has a unique ability to align its breadth and scale with business and industry, taking our solutions and making them viable for real-world applications.
- SUNY and the Seamless Education Pipeline - SUNY views education as a pipeline, which encompasses all that we learn from the day we are born through our experiences in the workforce. As New York State and the nation seek to fix the leaks in the education pipeline, SUNY has the capacity and a plan to lead the charge.
- SUNY and a Healthier New York - Building a virtual SUNY Institute for Health Policy and Practice (IHPP) will harness and leverage capacity across all 64 SUNY campuses. SUNY will address health issues for our students and faculty in a defined environment — our campuses — and then take "what works" to scale statewide and nationwide.
- SUNY and an Energy-Smart New York - SUNY's expertise in applied research and its ability to take it to scale will allow us to prepare New York State to capture an outsized share of that market and workforce while leading to a decrease in New York's energy consumption. SUNY sees the road to realizing this ambition in three parts: Education, Research, and Consumption Practices.
- SUNY and the Vibrant Community - Strong communities are at the heart of economic revitalization. They foster investment, improve quality of life, and grow stronger citizens. As anchor institutions, our influence is widely felt. Our scholars can quantify our contributions to the well-being of our communities, and our SUNY family can provide significant impact.
- SUNY and the World - Sustained economic prosperity requires a global approach. For New York, comprehensive internationalization will mean more global trade and an increase in personal income and job creation. SUNY can tangibly support this vision for New York by training an army of globally competent graduates with the experience and preparation necessary for their successes to transcend borders and return back home.
