College Goes Green with First Online Annual Report
2010 was the year U.S. News named SUNY Oswego to its short list of "Top Up-and-Coming Schools," and the college's first fully online annual report shows why.
In 44 vignettes and five short videos, the report shows Oswego students engaged in learning, research and service at home and abroad and the dedicated faculty who guide them.
"As you navigate through the report, you will see and hear images and sounds captured by our students, staff and faculty with still and video cameras," said President Deborah F. Stanley. "You will hear their voices, see eyes that light up, and, in those voices and faces, you will perceive the passion and enthusiasm that so many of us at SUNY Oswego bring to our work here."
The report comes to most alumni via Lake E-ffect; to employees, community leaders and officers at peer institutions via email; and to families of current students and other key stakeholders, for whom email addresses were not always available, via a postcard mailer. In addition to saving significant quantities of paper and ink, the online format eliminates the carbon costs of distributing hard copies by traditional post, not to mention the cost in dollars of printing and postage.
