Experiential and Field Placements

Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management

The Division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management is a learner-centered division where our primary goal is student success.  We recruit and enroll students who will be successful here and help them learn about all the opportunities that exist on campus.  We support the growth and development of our students inside and outside of the classroom by providing programs, services and opportunities that actively engage students in our campus community. 

Strategic Plan

In December 2014, SUNY Oswego launched its newest strategic plan, Tomorrow: Greater Impact and Success. Tomorrow will lead to a better understanding of the way SUNY Oswego pursues its mission and values. We will assess our activities and refine our actions accordingly to meet desirable outcomes tied to the public good. And, in doing so, we will have a new story of success to tell in this age of challenge.
