Strategic Plan

SUNY Cobleskill’s Strategic Plan was introduced in 2018 with the goal of sustaining a thriving and effective institution. This goal is comprised of five strategic initiatives representing our values and aspirations as an institution with a rich history and vibrant future. Guided by this plan, SUNY Cobleskill charts a bold path toward creating an even greater impact in the lives of our students and our communities beyond our campus. Work under the plan continues to evolve, as demonstrated through the release of the Our Pivotal Moment white paper.

Vision, Mission, and Values


As the premier educational institution of agriculture and technology, SUNY Cobleskill calls all learners to grow, to sustain and to renew the world and its citizens.

We continue to be guided by our founding vision: “Education is the hope of the world…If our young men and women are to grow quality in their lives they must learn to direct their own thinking, their own wanting, and their own doing.” (1921 College Catalog) 


SUNY Cobleskill sets the standard for applied education that extends theory into practice. We cultivate our students to positively affect the cultural, economic, natural and technological forces in their lives.

In pursuit of our mission we strive to honor our history, teach by doing, forge pathways for success, think globally and across disciplines, cultivate sustainability, embrace and support our community, and promote personal growth.


SUNY Cobleskill is a campus community characterized by empathy, inclusivity, respect, personal growth, integrity, and a collaborative spirit fostering well-being and sustainable practices. We recognize and celebrate student, faculty and staff achievements. We take pride in our campus and encourage collaboration with our surrounding communities.
