State University of New York struggles to find an identity

July 26, 2010
System consists of 64 campuses of various types and sizes

From The New York Times: Two things define the State University of New York (SUNY). It’s huge. And compared with its public peers, it’s weird. The numbers suggest a system that’s borderline unmanageable--64 campuses, 7,660 degree programs, 88,000 faculty members, 465,000 students, a $10.7 billion budget. In a brand-name culture, SUNY is a hard brand to define, especially when it’s still often thought of as an upstate phenomenon in a state whose center of gravity is south in New York City and its suburbs.
