Queensbury Faculty & Staff
Hello and welcome to SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury. My name is Stephen Danna and I serve as dean at the campus. We are a SUNY-designated branch campus and part of State University of New York at Plattsburgh.
Our motto, “You don’t have to leave to go far” rings true for North Country residents. SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury is located on the SUNY Adirondack campus and offers students opportunities to complete their bachelor’s degrees in business administration, criminal justice, nursing or psychology. We also offer graduate programs in education and education leadership, and we constantly seek ways to increase our program offerings. Besides college programs, SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury organizes and hosts regional conferences on topics ranging from climate change to poverty.
Whether you are an existing SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury student or someone who has either been accepted, or is considering SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury, welcome. Welcome to a special campus where student services and advisement are done carefully and personally, where students get to know their professors and office staff well and where opportunities arise through the important relationships developed among classmates, faculty, and staff. Please stop by and say “hi”.
