SUNY Empire State College
SUNY Empire State College created a community of learners brought together not by proximity but by a drive to succeed despite life’s obstacles. While many students attend classes online, several facilities throughout this dispersed campus offer opportunities to meet face-to-face with instructors and peers. To ensure that students have a similar quality experience no matter where they are located, we designed a flexible Regional Center prototype where students can connect in-person, attend groups study sessions, and engage in collaborative coursework in a technology-rich environment.
Since 1999 we have developed a comprehensive understanding of this unique, forward-thinking College and its important role in the SUNY system. The many capital projects identified in our plans and designed by our team support the long-term development and rapid evolution of the College as they adapt to meet the needs of non-traditional students.
