An Economic Engine for the Region

With an annual general budget of $106 million, SUNY Oneonta is an economic engine for the Oneonta region. The college employs a work force of more than 1,250 and enrolls approximately 6,000 students, many of whom purchase goods and services from businesses in Otsego County.

The college collaborates with a variety of community organizations to enhance the quality of life in our region. We offer space on our campus, financial and in-kind support, and the enthusiasm and expertise of our faculty, staff and students, who volunteer in the community and present educational and cultural events ranging from science fairs to theater productions.

Local and regional internship partnerships give area businesses and nonprofits an extra pair of hands, and the opportunity to guide and evaluate talent.

SUNY Oneonta students volunteer more than 50,000 hours of service each year through our nationally recognized Center for Social Responsibility and Community (CSRC).
SUNY Oneonta is the area’s leading cultural and educational resource, bringing distinguished speakers to Oneonta and offering dozens of cultural events to the community each year.
You don’t have to be a student at SUNY Oneonta—or even seeking a college degree at all—to take classes on our campus. We welcome non-degree students of all ages. You can take classes on campus during the fall and spring semesters. During the summer and winter sessions, a variety of classes are available online.
