President's Welcome

Welcome! You’ve made a great choice by visiting our site to learn more about SUNY Adirondack! Whether you are searching for degree opportunities, professional certification courses or continuing education classes, I invite you to explore all the ways we can assist you to achieve your goals.  The SUNY Adirondack campus is conveniently located between Lake George and Saratoga Springs, with easy access to entertainment, art, and all-season outdoor recreation activities. While we’re located in Warren County, you’ll also have easy access to the many historical and cultural sites and events found in nearby Washington County and the city of Saratoga Springs.

If you make the wise choice of attending SUNY Adirondack, you will experience a vibrant learning community of experienced faculty and dedicated staff who will challenge and support you to learn, grow, and achieve the goals you have today while also setting new goals for the future. Whether you choose to take classes at our main campus in Queensbury, our new Wilton extension center in Saratoga County, online, or a combination of all, you will be taught by faculty who are dedicated to your success and have real-world experience in their respective fields.

SUNY Adirondack serves over 4,000 students from the local region, surrounding counties, and a variety of locations throughout the state, country, and the world! We welcome all who will benefit from higher education, regardless of whether you are pursuing one of our degree or certificate programs, or through a variety of continuing education courses and training programs. SUNY Adirondack graduates are well-prepared for transfer to many of the four-year colleges and universities throughout the state and country, or for entrance to the workforce upon completing our career-ready programs.

Starting your education at a community college and transferring to a four-year public or private college/university or entering the workforce not only makes good economic sense, but most importantly you will learn from faculty who care about teaching and learning in small classes with many supports and “real-world” connections to help you reach your goals. SUNY Adirondack’s on-campus Regional Higher Education Center also provides students and community members with direct access to bachelor's and master's degrees without having to leave the area — or even the campus — through partnerships with SUNY Plattsburgh, Empire State College, and Paul Smith’s College.

We are entering our second year providing suite-style housing for those who wish to live in a state-of-the-art residence hall facility. Students can achieve the full college experience with on-campus living, fitness facilities, on-site classrooms, and a spacious multi-use room for events, activities, and gatherings for residents and college community members alike. Schedule a time to visit our vibrant and growing campus by clicking here.

As you will learn through visiting our campus, exploring our website, and listening to the thousands of alumni in the Capital Region, New York State and abroad who call us their alma mater, we stand ready to create a SUNY Adirondack experience that meets your needs.  I hope to see you on campus soon!


Kristine Duffy, Ed.D.
