This spring, SUNY Oswego highlighted the vitality, talent and global reach of campus members in its annual report.
“The year brought us new places for learning and engagement, an influx of funding to propel us to excellence, new academic programs to launch students on rewarding careers and impressive faculty talent to ignite students’ intellectual passions,” Oswego President Deborah F. Stanley says. “It saw our college’s international connections and their consequences for the future multiply.”
Among the facts and figures shared in the 2012-13 report was the record number of international and exchange students who studied at Oswego. A total of 266 arrived on campus, with more than half of those coming from China and South Korea. The other 120 students represented 24 countries, led by Canada, Japan, Australia and Brazil.
The report showcases the capital enhancements, including Romney Field House, Wilber Hall, Rice Creek Field Station and the new Shineman Center for Science, Engineering and Innovation as well as the more than $25 million in support from federal Race to the Top funding, National Science Foundation, NYSUNY 20/20 Challenge grant and $5 million from Dr. Barbara Palmer Shineman ’65 M’71, a professor emerita of education, and the Richard S. Shineman Foundation.
“As we align our college with what we foresee to be future realities and work to meet new needs, our students and faculty continue to demonstrate that they have the drive and understanding to lead change and develop solutions to shared challenges,” Stanley says. “I am tremendously proud of all that our college community achieved in 2012-13 and encourage you to share in our Future Ready spirit.”
