College Catalog Fall 2008 - Spring 2009
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 65 academic programs leading to certificates, associate's degrees, and specialized baccalaureate degrees. The U.S. News and World Report College Guide ranked SUNY Dehi among the top 45 baccalaureate colleges in the United States in 2007.

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.

Nearly 2,800 students attend Delhi, and they represent a true cross-section of the state's population. Nearly 30 percent of the student body comes from the Mid-Hudson region, about 25 percent comes from New York City and Long Island, with the remainder representing nearly every county in New York, neighboring states, and foreign countries such as Ecuador, Japan, and Jamaica. Students from under-represented groups now make up 27 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. Approximately 65 percent of the student body lives in one of six on-campus residence halls. Catskill Hall, the newest residence hall, features suite-style living. A new 70-bed college-managed apartment complex is scheduled to open in Fall 2008. Living-learning environments are available to students in Nursing, Veterinary Science, and Golf, Plant Sciences, and Recreation. 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 production and job interview techniques, and strategies for succeeding at college work.

Academic support for students is also available through the Resnick Learning Center. Students can receive instruction in writing, mathematics, study skills, and other areas through peer and professional tutoring.
