The college’s Environmental Research Center conducts various studies to improve understanding of the movement of chemical contaminants in the Lake Ontario environment and food chain and their effects on wildlife and humans. An ongoing multimillion-dollar project monitors the health of fish in all five Great Lakes. A collaboration with Clarkson University and SUNY Fredonia, it is funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The study’s data form the basis for the advisories that state health departments issue regarding consumption of fish from the lakes.
The college established the Center for Energy Education and Economic Solutions to leverage the expertise of education, business and government to promote the understanding of energy sustainability and independence for economic development solutions for the region.
The college’s Center for Neurobehavioral Effects of Environmental Toxins studies the impact of contaminants, such as those in regional waterways, as they move through the environment to humans. Its Oswego Children’s Study, which also provides a bounty of longitudinal data to other researchers, has received more than $8 million in external funding since 1990.
Biology faculty and students work to identify and protect the rare habitats of endangered species in Upstate New York and help defend the habitat these animals and plants call home.
The meteorology faculty conducts research on Great Lakes wind patterns and lake-effect snows, which has been used by the forecasters with the National Weather Service in Buffalo as well as utilities at Oswego County’s Nine Mile Point.
The college’s Environmental Research Center provides environmental consultation and analytical services to local industrial corporations and organizations.
The college’s Environmental Health and Safety Office periodically opens its health and safety training programs to public employees from surrounding communities.
President Stanley was an early signer of the 2007 American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment, a pledge to develop a long-range plan to reduce and ultimately neutralize greenhouse gas emissions on the campus. The pledge commits SUNY Oswego to an array of actions in pursuit of climate neutrality, including the use of the U.S. Green Building Council’s Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design silver standard in new campus construction. The Campus Center, completed in 2006, met this standard, and the college aspires for gold standard as it builds new science facilities and the Village, a campus townhouse complex.
