Upstate Institute

Promoting an understanding of the cultural, social, economic, and environmental resources of Upstate New York.

Faculty Programs

While Colgate often has the feel of a small liberal arts college, we also provide the research opportunities and capabilities more typical of a larger research institution. The Upstate Institute encourages faculty to advance their own academic interests by doing research on subjects important to our region, simultaneously benefitting the community in which the university resides.

Lifelong Learning
