About SUNY Morrisville:
SUNY Morrisville, a college that leverages the expansive resources of the State University of New York, is a model of innovative applied education. Located in the center of New York State, the college offers students hands-on, experiential learning in modern classrooms and specialized facilities, many of which are rare or one-of-a-kind in higher education. Morrisville's 3,000 students - who come from diverse backgrounds across the state and around the world - choose from more than 80 associate and bachelor degree programs that embrace agriculture, technology, business, social sciences, including Psychology, Criminal Justice, and the liberal arts. An internship program that prepares students for success in the 21st-century workplace ranks among the top ten in the nation. At Morrisville, motivated students work alongside talented faculty members - many with field experience - to imagine, build, and test practical, sustainable solutions to some of the fundamental questions confronting a shrinking world with diminishing resources.
