SUNY Empire State College is taking proactive measures to protect the safety and security of students, faculty, and staff while closely monitoring the development of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The college is in close contact with SUNY System Administration and the New York State Department of Health and will share updates and new guidance quickly with the SUNY Empire community.

We have launched a new fund to help SUNY Empire students succeed through the COVID-19 response.

The SUNY Empire State College community is volunteering, organizing, and donating their time and services in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
