Central Elements of Our Vision for New Paltz

Most of our undergraduate students will live on campus and many faculty/staff will live in close proximity to campus. We want to offer a rich and lively co-curriculum that (a) reinforces what students learn in the classroom; (b) responds to students’ interests and (c) takes full advantage of New Paltz’s extraordinary geographic location. The intellectual and social life of the campus should draw substantial numbers of faculty, staff and students to events during evenings and on weekends. And we must pay more careful attention to the campus’ physical appearance and maintenance, which reflect our values and affect our morale.
