2020 SUNY Oswego Annual Report

Sustainable Institution

SUNY Oswego remains focused on being an institution that delivers on its mission to advance and create new opportunities for knowledge; effectively and responsibly steward resources and public funds; and enrich our region through economic and social contributions and service.

Ensuring Sound Operations and Financial Stability

SUNY Oswego campus is well-positioned and continues to deploy a multifaceted approach to ensure continued business operations and financial stability through these challenging, unprecedented times. Over the past five years of campus renewal, SUNY Oswego’s capital plan projects exceeded $91 million dollars and injected over $50 million dollars into New York’s economy. In the last year, even with the impact of COVID-19 slowing down the completion of some projects, SUNY Oswego still completed millions of dollars in capital projects.

Growing our Endowment

SUNY Oswego is enduring in these extremely challenging times, effectively shifting gears and changing directions in response to a variety of priorities and needs that emerged this past year. Notably, the Oswego College Foundation’s Investment Committee, comprised of alumni volunteers, skillfully stewarded the endowment throughout the tumultuous ups and downs over the past year to its June 2020 level of approximately $44 million – a 5.3-percent increase from fiscal year 2019.

Investing in Student Success

In total last year, the college oversaw the distribution of more than $1.2 million in 522 privately funded student scholarships and awards. Many of these scholarships were established by or in honor of alumni, whose support expresses the important role SUNY Oswego played in their lives.
