President’s Message

Message From The President

Welcome to SUNY Ulster and our newly redesigned Web site. Whether you are a prospective student, alumnus, area businessperson, parent, family member, local resident or friend of our college, we've designed this site so it's easy to find the information that is important to you.

Please browse these pages and explore our many credit and non-credit offerings. As you do, imagine participating in a music or arts program, joining in a book discussion or hearing a poetry reading, seeing a theater production or art exhibit, playing a sport or cheering your Senator's team to victory, or receiving business advice or training that makes your dreams reality.

Come visit us. The best way to truly try out the fit of a college is by coming for a campus visit. And we invite you to try us on for size anytime. Contact our Admissions Office to set up an appointment, or just stop by at your convenience.

If you're like me, you won't want to leave. I've been on the staff of SUNY Ulster for more than 40 years now and have served in many roles, including Director of Student Activities, head of Development and Advancement programs, Chief Academic Officer, and Vice President and Dean of Faculty, before being appointed President in 2001. The SUNY Ulster community has  become my family, and I'm sure you'll feel the same way after spending some time here.

SUNY Ulster is committed to your success. We want your experience with us to be satisfying and rewarding. Connect with us through Facebook and Twitter and visit back for the latest news and information.

I look forward to seeing you here! Please say hello when you're on campus and let me know if I can help you achieve your goals.

Dr. Donald C. Katt
President's Office: Clinton 229
