Sage to Host Study New York Conference

June 19, 2014 at 9:37 am

TROY, NY – The Sage Colleges is pleased to host a Study New York conference. The conference is an opportunity for institutions in New York to brainstorm ways to bring more international students, researchers and visiting professors to the United States, and more importantly to New York.

“Diversity is such an important aspect of the educational experience,” said Gerald Shaye, executive in residence for Sage’s School of Management.  “It enhances the overall experience for faculty, staff, and students and contributes to the cultural enrichment of our surrounding communities.”

Study New York, Inc. was founded in 2009 and is the largest consortium of colleges and universities in the U.S., comprised of independent (private, non-profit) colleges and universities, SUNY (State University of New York), and CUNY (City University of New York) colleges and universities. The organization is governed by a Board of Directors elected from its membership and its work is done through three main committees. Non-voting liaisons to the Board include representatives from the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities (CICU), SUNY, CUNY, New York State Department of Economic Development, and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
