Empire State College

Founded in 1971, Empire State College, State University of New York, is one of the university’s 13 colleges of arts and sciences, accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education. The college is uniquely designed to serve adults pursuing associate, bachelor’s and master’s degrees. The college offers affordable SUNY degrees onsite at locations in New York state and abroad, as well as entirely online.


The State University of New York, through the State University Faculty Senate’s University Programs and Awards Committee, sponsors intercampus faculty conferences within and across academic disciplines known as "Conversations in the Disciplines" (SUNY CID).

The SUNY CID program is designed to bring together SUNY faculty and visiting scholars from non-SUNY institutions to examine new trends, address changes and challenges, review promising research findings and become acquainted with professional developments in their fields and on other campuses.

Designed to promote both the professional and personal growth of participants and their respective campuses, program emphasis is on scholarly and creative development rather than administrative, curricular, or instructional matters.
