    ABOUT SUNY COBLESKILL

    Mission Statement

    With an emphasis on experiential education, SUNY Cobleskill prepares students for successful careers, advanced studies,

    and engaged citizenship.

    Accreditation

    SUNY Cobleskill is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. The education department of the

    State University of New York registers all academic programs. SUNY Cobleskill is approved for awarding of the following

    degrees: Associate of Arts (A.A.); Associate of Science (A.S.); Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.); Associate of Occupational

    Studies (A.O.S.); Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.); Bachelor of Science (B.S.); and Bachelor of Technology (B.T.).

    History

    SUNY Cobleskill was chartered in 1911 and opened in 1916 as the Schoharie State School of Agriculture with one building,

    five faculty members and eight students, all young men desiring post-secondary education in agriculture.

    By 1928 the College consisted of four main buildings, now known as the quadrangle, with Frisbie Hall being the

    headquarters for the teacher training classes, an out cropping of the home economics program which had been started for

    young women. Directly opposite Frisbie, in the building now called the Old Gym, the upstairs served as a basketball court

    and as a facility for physical education. The original basketball court lines on the floor of what is now Grosvenor Art Gallery

    are still clearly visible.

    The basement of the Home Economics building was the center for the program in, you guessed it, home economics, as well

    as the College cafeteria. The building now called Alumni Hall served as the headquarters for the agricultural programs.

    From 1947 to 1960 enrollment grew rapidly. The advent of degree programs resulted in a doubling of enrollment in a 10-

    year period prior to the fall of 1961. In the 1960s, facilities were expanded to meet the needs of the growing campus

    community, and in the period between.

    1960 to 1973, most of the buildings which are presently on campus were built. The arches sculpture and Bouck Hall Mall, a

    focal point for the campus, were constructed between 1975 and 1976.

    In 1987, the College began offering its first Bachelor of Technology in agriculture, and now also offers bachelor’s and

    associate degrees in 53 programs in Agriculture and Natural Resources, Business, and Liberal Arts and Sciences, as well as a

    wide array of continuing education and professional development opportunities. SUNY Cobleskill is now officially

    recognized as a comprehensive college.

    Today, SUNY Cobleskill has grown to include 782 acres and more than 40 buildings, 100 faculty members and 2,600

    students. It has grown and changed but stayed true to its original charter. SUNY Cobleskill prides itself on giving individual

    attention to students, on programs that marry theory with practice, and on commitment to preparing students for a

    lifetime of learning and accomplishment.

    About SUNY Cobleskill

    Location

    SUNY Cobleskill is located in New York’s Schoharie County, a picturesque and historic area approximately 160 miles

    northwest of New York City and midway between Albany and Oneonta. State Route 7 runs through the middle of the 782-

    acre campus at the western edge of the Village of Cobleskill, directly off Interstate 88.

    Schoharie County offers a rare combination of rural life and direct access to the services and activities of a metropolitan

    area, New York’s Capital Region. Albany is only a 35-minute drive northeast of SUNY Cobleskill. The county is in close

    proximity to such splendors as the Adirondack Park, the Catskill Mountains, the historic Helderberg Mountains, and the

    Mohawk Valley. State and private parks, streams, lakes, mountain trails and ski areas provide an abundance of outdoor

    activities.

    The Village of Cobleskill, with approximately 6,400 residents, is a typical small college town with convenient access to

    shopping, dining, recreational facilities and medical services. With a history that dates to 1711, the Cobleskill area is a

    treasure trove of historic sites and museums.

    Residence Halls

    The College has ten residence halls designed to accommodate between 150 and 231 students each. They house only full-

    time, degree-seeking students. All new students are obligated to a two-year campus residency. All student rooms are wired

    for cable television and Internet access, as well as voice mail. Based upon cost and availability, rooms may be singles,

    doubles or triples. Residence hall accommodations are the property of the State University of New York, and are subject to

    the rules and regulations of the State University and the College.

    College Council

    SUNY Cobleskill’s College Council, in accordance with provisions of New York State Education Law, consists of ten members

    – nine appointed by the governor and one elected by and from the student body. A member designated by the governor

    serves as the Council’s chair. Council members are appointed to terms of seven years.

    As established by the State University trustees, the duties and powers of SUNY Cobleskill’s College Council include:

    recommending candidates to the SUNY trustees for appointment as president of the College; reviewing all major plans of

    the president and making relevant recommendations before submission to the trustees; making regulations regarding

    campus faculty; reviewing and recommending institutional budgets; fostering the development of citizen advisory

    committees; naming buildings and grounds; making regulations regarding student conduct; and exercising supervision of
