A Message from the VP for DEIB

We continue an academic journey which will be remembered like no other. Fused into the pandemic was/is social unrest, passionate responses, increased concerns, and confusion about where we are headed as a country and sometimes as a community. But, at SUNY Poly, we know where we are headed, and we will move forward collectively and in support of each other. We find sound value in the power of pause, reflection, and clarity. We believe these constructs are the cornerstones of our educational community’s landscape.

Here at SUNY Poly, we firmly believe in E Pluribus Unum: out of many, one.

Out of many come the lenses and experiences of all who are part of what we call our community—our family. What we continue to learn is that there is tremendous value in our varied lenses. This approach is our foundation and our strength.

Have a meaningful semester, academic experience and remember, you depart and return as a proud member of an inclusive, diverse, and equitable community where all are welcome.
