- On April 9, 1953, the State University of New York (SUNY) Board of Trustees approved the establishment of a community college in Auburn under the sponsorship of the Auburn City School District. Auburn Community College opened its doors the following September in the former James Street Elementary School. It was the first community college developed entirely after the establishment of SUNY. When Cayuga County assumed sponsorship for the College in July 1975, the name was officially changed to Cayuga County Community College. Today, more than 4,000 students are enrolled either full-time or part-time at Cayuga's two locations. With over 25,000 alumni to the College's credit, Cayuga has produced graduates of distinction in a wide array of fields.
