Dear Members of the SUNY Oswego Community-

Happy New Year! I hope this message finds you in good health and high spirits as we embark on a new semester.

Spring is the season of new beginnings, and the spring semester at SUNY Oswego is a time of exploration and challenge, growth, and possibilities. And, like the spring weather, I’m sure there will be some surprises along the way, but nothing that our Laker community can’t handle.

I hope you all take advantage of everything this campus and its people have to offer. For students, our stellar faculty will provide challenges that will broaden your outlook and help you prepare for careers or future study. Our dedicated academic, career, and personal counseling support teams are always available to you. More than 150 clubs and organizations are here to enrich your college experience, and our fantastic Laker athletic teams will have you cheering in the stands. The semester will go by quickly – savor every moment.

The administration and staff will be engaged in advancing key programs and initiatives. We’ll continue to meet with internal and external stakeholders to make our Vision 4040, which will double the number of Oswego graduates by the year 2040, a reality. We will continue to engage with Micron’s leadership team to support its entry into Central New York. We also plan to wrap up our strategic planning process, informed in part by a market analysis by Hanover Research.

As we look forward to this new semester, I am committed more than ever to connecting with as many of you as possible. I will continue making the rounds and offering drop-in sessions to the campus community. In addition, I am planning to conduct virtual town hall meetings this spring, to keep you abreast of new developments on campus and answer questions about topics of interest to you.

Together, I know we all will have a richly rewarding and memorable few months, and I hope to see you on our spectacular campus.

Go Lakers!

Remain well,

Peter O. Nwosu, Ph.D.
