SUNY Morrisville

Strategic Plan


David E. Rogers, President

David E. Rogers, Ph.D.

We are committed to the success of our students.

I am pleased to present this updated version of Morrisville's Strategic Plan, representing the 2018-2023 period.

We have done great work together this past year, and you will find evidence of significant accomplishment with this year's update.

We have recently improved our procedures to both gather and analyze information attendant to evaluating our overall success in mission outcomes. These efforts help to inform improvements in both programs and policies. This is a sign of a maturing organization that is better prepared to meet challenges that lie ahead.

We are committed to the success of our students. Not only do we work hard to create a welcoming and affirming culture, but we strive to create supportive connections for all students to succeed. And when they encounter difficulties—and even before those difficulties arise—we want to anticipate how to overcome those challenges.

Morrisville is an institution with grit and determination. We meet the challenges of our time, while also individualizing education for students who have their sights on transforming the future. Our students, faculty and staff are unrelenting in their entrepreneurial pursuit of making a positive difference throughout New York communities. They form valuable partnerships that weave and reinforce the fabric of our economy and society.

Through challenges great and small, Morrisville's commitment to its mission has led both to adaptation and transformation as we chart a sustainable pathway for our future. The recent accomplishments and future priorities outlined in this updated document serve as testament to the success of Morrisville's mission as a catalyst for both student development and community growth.


SUNY Morrisville aspires to be a recognized leader in innovative applied education.


SUNY Morrisville works to offer diverse learning experiences so that graduates may pursue rewarding lives and careers, become engaged citizens, and contribute to our collective future.

The SUNY Morrisville Institutional Learning Outcomes (ILOs) were developed through a Provost ad-hoc workgroup and approved by shared governance and leadership in January 2019. These outcomes represent the broad SUNY Morrisville curricular and co-curricular student experiences upon attending and graduating from SUNY Morrisville.

Institutional Learning Outcome 4
