Did you know?
The Center for International Programs at SUNY New Paltz enrolls more international students than any other SUNY college, and is the only college with a year-round intensive English language program. Each year, 350 to 400 students study abroad through the Center. After undergoing a comprehensive assessment by an external organization, the Center expanded its pre-departure orientations, initiated a Global Scholars Program and developed an on-line student evaluation program. In 2007, the Forum on Education Abroad recognized the Center for its commitment and dedication to offering high-quality programs in education abroad.
Why is this important?
One of the college’s vision points is to maintain a very diverse institution in terms of student ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geography, and intellectual interests. A student body with international experience is one way to enhance the diversity of our college.
Did you Know?
Sojourner Truth Library faculty taught 6,291 students in library instruction classes in 2009-2010.
Why is this Important?
One of the college’s vision points is to “teach a curriculum that prepares students for their lives and careers.” There is a growing need for students to learn effective skills to navigate and evaluate digital resources. Instruction in “information literacy” or “information management” reinforces students’ learning in their General Education programs and their academic majors.
Did you Know?
In Summer 2010, 13 students worked full-time on an Undergraduate Research project, each with a faculty mentor. The students were majors in Art, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Engineering, International Relations, English, Philosophy, Physics, Psychology, and Women’s Studies. In the fall semester, they presented the results of their research to faculty, staff and other students.
Why is this Important?
One of the college’s goals is to link student intellectual growth with faculty scholarship. We want the faculty’s excitement about their own research and creative activity to inspire students in class and in experiences such as joint faculty-student research, internships, students shows and recitals. These kinds of experiences are what make New Paltz different from community colleges and research universities.
