About SUNY North Country Consortium
SUNY Colleges in the North Country has proudly served the Northern New York and Fort Drum communities since 1985. The idea for the consortium came about as a result of State University of New York (SUNY) and Fort Drum representatives meeting in 1984 to discuss the need for broadening higher educational opportunities in the Watertown/Fort Drum area. Realizing that the establishment of another four-year campus was not feasible, the representatives decided that the educational needs of the area could best be met through the creation of a consortium of colleges. This approach allows the responsibility for course and program delivery to be shared among member colleges without overburdening any one particular campus.
Today the organization consists of seven colleges working collaboratively to offer degrees in a variety of areas at the Associate, Bachelors, and Masters levels. As consortium members, colleges agree not to replicate one another's course offerings and to support each other's programs whenever possible. Each member also participates in Service Members Opportunity Colleges.
