College Mission

SUNY College at Old Westbury is a dynamic and diverse public liberal arts college that fosters academic excellence through close interaction among students, faculty and staff. Old Westbury weaves the values of integrity, community engagement, and global citizenship into the fabric of its academic programs and campus life. In an environment that cultivates critical thinking, empathy, creativity and intercultural understanding, we endeavor to stimulate a passion for learning and a commitment to building a more just and sustainable world. The College is a community of students, teachers, staff, and alumni bound together in mutual support, respect, and dedication to the Mission.


College Vision Statement: 2010 – 2015

To become a competitive, comprehensive college offering quality undergraduate and graduate degrees in the arts and sciences and professional areas to 4500 students on an attractive campus conducive to the needs of a growing residential and commuter student body.”

The College–wide Strategic Planning process took place between April 2009 and February 2010.
