“SUNY Sullivan has worked to increase our applied learning opportunities for students, we’ve aligned ourselves more closely with business and industry, and we continue to work to strengthen our academic and support programs. The changes we are making to move our library services into the digital age as well as the creation of a new One Stop Center continues to enhance our student-centered approach to higher education.”
