College Catalog Fall 2004 - Spring 2006
College Overview

Founded in 1913 and granted charter membership in the State University of New York in 1948, SUNY Delhi has earned a solid reputation for providing a student-centered, residential collegiate experience focused on academic excellence, innovation, and hands-on experience. Delhi has also carved a unique niche in higher education. Delhi offers a seamless technology-based education that includes over 40 academic programs leading to certificates, associate degrees, and specialized baccalaureate degrees.

Hands-on experience is the cornerstone of Delhi's academic programs. Bachelor's degree programs include extensive internships. Technical programs feature extensive on-the-job experiences as well. It is a proven approach that gets results. More than 95 percent of Delhi students find jobs or continue their education within a year of graduating.

Over 2,300 students attend Delhi, and they represent a true cross-section of the state's population. For example, nearly 30 percent of the student body comes from the Metropolitan-Long Island region. The remaining students come from nearly every region of upstate New York, from neighboring states, and foreign countries such as China, Japan, and Jamaica. Students of color now make up 21 percent of Delhi's student body.

As a residential college, Delhi is committed to providing programs and services designed to enhance the personal and cultural development of students. Currently there are five on-campus residence halls that are an integral part of that experience (with a sixth, suite-style hall scheduled to open in Fall 2004), and approximately 65 percent of the student body lives on campus. Living-learning environments are available to students in Veterinary Science Technology; Golf, Plant Sciences, and Recreation; Nursing; and the Educational Opportunity Program. These are highly sought living environments because they offer special services that contribute to student success. Distinguishing features include peer and faculty mentors, classes conducted in the residence halls, and the opportunity to form special relationships with classmates.

Delhi offers a full range of individual counseling, career planning and placement assistance, and disabled student services. Special attention is given to outreach programs that offer workshops on contemporary health and lifestyle issues, résumé and job interview techniques, and strategies for succeeding at college work.

Support for students with special educational needs is also available through the Learning Center. Students can receive instruction in mathematics, English, study skills, and other areas through peer and professional tutoring.
