Since its inception as the Classical School nearly 200 years ago, SUNY New Paltz has nurtured a reputation for creativity and a spirit of inquiry.
We graduate students equipped with knowledge, skills, and a sense of purpose that embolden them to become the educators, innovators, explorers, scientists, engineers, artists and entrepreneurs this world needs.
Over the years, visionary leadership, the endeavors of our faculty, staff and students, the achievements of our alumni, and philanthropic support from those who believe in our mission all have brought SUNY New Paltz to where it is today—recognized among the finest public institutions in the country and still accessible to students from diverse backgrounds.
Building on our accomplishments and driven by our aspirations, we launch Soaring Higher—The Campaign for SUNY New Paltz. The first comprehensive campaign in the College’s history, this multi-year initiative seeks $23 Million in philanthropic support for strategic priorities across campus:
Provide Opportunity: Scholarships & Experiential Learning ($11.5 Million)
Provide students with access to higher education and opportunities to expand their learning in real-world situations.
Build Capacity: Program Support ($8 Million)
Expand new and existing programs that provide compelling and distinct opportunities for our students.
Expand Possibilities: The Fund for New Paltz ($3.5 Million)
Create learning opportunities that awaken the potential in every student and enrich the experiences of our students and our community.
