Mission, Vision & Plattsburgh Next
Plattsburgh Next creates a road map of essential steps designed to lead our campus toward greater institutional strength and a future of sustained vibrancy. In this period of rapid and unpredictable change within higher education, it is critical that we are guided by a strategic plan that is rooted in our history, mission, and values, while positioning the college to evolve and move toward a positive future.
Plattsburgh Next prioritizes the many positive ideas shared by our campuses (Main Campus and Queensbury) and the larger community throughout this strategic planning process, initiated in November 2020. Importantly, it will play a key role in the allocation of our precious resources.
Our Four Pillars for the Future
These pillars will be the benchmarks we will use to measure our progress. In addition to aligning divisional plans with each of these pillars, we will dedicate $2 million dollars from a one-time strategic investment fund to provide resources toward the accomplishment of Plattsburgh Next’s goals, a diverse student body where each student is valued and supported in the pursuit of their educational goals.
SUNY Plattsburgh provides outstanding liberal arts and pre- professional programs along with a college experience that prepares students for their professional and civic futures. We recognize our unique location and commitment to social and environmental responsibility as integral to our identity. We maintain a nurturing, accessible campus climate for a diverse student body where each student is valued and supported in the pursuit of their educational goals.
SUNY Plattsburgh will be the North Country’s preeminent public college that embraces environmental sustainability and social responsibility. We will be a destination campus that serves all students in an inclusive environment with academic excellence as our foundational core. We will be a valued community collaborator and a critical driver of economic growth and vitality for North Country residents.
