Quality of Place
What makes a place special? How do we transform an assortment of buildings and roadways, shops and schools, bricks and mortar, into an exciting, vibrant community? How does an ordinary "space" become a "place" - something greater than the sum of its parts? And what makes that place a magnet for creative individuals, entrepreneurs and innovators - people who'll be learning, living, playing, and staying? In New York State, SUNY is a big part of the answer.
Our 64 campuses draw faculty, staff and students from across the state, nation and globe - bright minds, talent and diversity that infuse our communities with creative energy. We are not temporary visitors. We sink deep roots. We put our imaginations and resources to work. We are your partners for the long term. Our ties are strong and enduring.
In this Conversation, we'll take a close look at how we connect with our diverse communities. We want to use our knowledge and skills to promote safe and livable neighborhoods, stable housing, and thriving workplaces. We'll consider how we can help make communities stronger and more resilient, the kinds of places that attract the very brightest, and keep that talent right here in New York.
