Among SUNY's comprehensive colleges, Old Westbury ranks among the
highest in science and engineering funding to support competitive scientific research.
Funding for research is provided by the U.S. Department of Energy, the National
Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health,
the National Science Foundation and the New York State Department of Education.
35 Old Westbury students gave up their traditional Spring Break rituals in 2006 and instead volunteered their time and effort in New Orleans to aid recovery efforts in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
The JP Morgan Chase Foundation awarded a $50,000 grant to support the Curriculum Materials Center in the College library.
