As the largest comprehensive university system in the world, with 64 diverse campuses and nearly a half million students, The State University of New York (SUNY) system, by signing this Declaration, is hereby committing its time, talent and resources to the sustainable development objectives outlined in said document. SUNY has just hired its first system-level Director of Sustainability.

Implementation methodologies

Our next step will be to communicate with constituent campuses and encourage them to sign the Declaration and commit to the UNGC. Later this year, SUNY will establish an internal task force to develop strategy for implementing UNGC system-wide and will form a working group to develop a Communications on Progress (COP) for the SUNY system.
