Dear Friends,

One of the cornerstones of our Alfred State culture is project-based learning, or having students work on and learn from real-world problems. As a result, we can boast a 99 percent placement rate in the workforce or advanced degrees after graduation.


From Campaign 101, to the alternative fuel lab, to our victory at the Watkins Glen Green Grand Prix, Alfred State students are receiving an education that prepares them to be conscientious global citizens and in turn demonstrates the value of an Alfred State education.

Pursuing the advancement of Alfred State sustainability, I was invited to be a part of The Salzburg Global Seminar's Sustainable Futures Academy in Salzburg, Austria, and was affirmed about our current work toward that future. Looking at our efforts here at the college, it is clear that we are on that path, ever ready to find new outlets and ways to make us not only more sustainable but to make us distinct in the process.


As part of our commitment to sustainability, I am pleased to announce that our director of sustainability will join the Alfred State community next month. Alfred State will also be hosting our first sustainability conference in June titled "Innovations in Technical Education to Advance Sustainability."
I hope you are just as proud of our students as I am, as we continue to advance in the areas of sustainability, civic engagement, and project-based learning. 


    Warm regards,


    John M. Anderson, Ph.D.
    President, Alfred State
