Designing the Future

Designing the Future

When SUNY Cobleskill opened its modest doors in 1916, few could imagine the diverse and complex campus that would grow from its humble roots.  Yet the aspirations, values, and qualities that guided the College’s founders still inspire us today.  SUNY Cobleskill remains true to its origins and is still thriving. Our forward-thinking nature has now created a multi-faceted institution.

As true today as it was 100 years ago, our students stand at the forefront of innovation. Interdisciplinary collaborations pair agricultural business with the performing arts, and some of our region’s youngest citizens with some of our most senior. From Antarctica to Peru, SUNY Cobleskill is designing a future of global influence while providing life-changing educational experiences for our students.

Designing the Future

In providing foundations for tomorrow’s innovators, the role of our institution is more apparent than ever before: SUNY Cobleskill is at the epicenter of forward thinking. For our students and our graduates, college is at the core of what comes next. What the world imagines, we conceptualize, build, and instill. Stylistically and theoretically across disciplines, the education we provide is more than preparation for the imminent. It is a means to designing the future.
