Any SUNY schools in trouble or decline?
There have been some SUNY schools in the news with embarrassing administrative problems recently. SUNY Poly, Upstate Medical, ESF come to mind. I don't know if that necessarily means these schools are in decline or if they are just going through some bad administrators. What have you heard about various schools at SUNY in terms of their academic direction, program strength, or financial solvency? My daughter is considering some of the comprehensives (looking at Geneseo or Oswego while trying to decide her major) but I would like to know more about known or hidden problems in the system.5 replies
