From the Dean

Dr. Tracy Allen

Greetings, and welcome to the School of Sciences.  I am pleased that you are interested in learning more about us.  We are proud of our emphasis on personalized instructional settings and faculty-student collaborative research partnerships.  Everyone involved with the school is united by a common desire to enrich your education experience.  It is our expertise as educators and researchers, as well as our passion for service to the common good, that have increasingly brought us to the forefront.  Our school prepares future generations through rigorous academic programs in Sciences that involve high-impact student learning.  We hope to have the opportunity to share our passion for education, research and service as we prepare you to confidently tackle real-world challenges.

I encourage prospective students, parents, alumni, and friends of the school to explore our website.  I trust it will be evident that our mission is reflected in our work, as we apply knowledge gained through scientific inquiry in solving human, social and environmental problems. The best way to learn about a campus is to visit. We hope you will plan to come to SUNY Oneonta for a campus tour. My colleagues and I are eager to assist you in any way that we can. Whether you are a student, parent, graduate, or friend of the school, experience the doors we can open for you. 

Whichever of a thousand paths you may choose in life, the sciences will prepare you for great success.

Warmest wishes,

Tracy H. Allen, Ph.D.
Dean, School of Sciences
