SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill
- At SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology, we are proud of a long tradition of combining theoretical knowledge with practical application. So while we have traditional classrooms-and not so traditional web-based courses-we have the "real life" laboratories: a dairy barn, an equestrian center, greenhouses, a heavy equipment laboratory, a fish hatchery, a restaurant, a catering kitchen and two production kitchens, a travel center, a child care center and a child development center, a television studio, a histotechnology laboratory, and network labs, just to name a few. In these places, and in the classroom, our students experience "real learning." The true value of this is twofold. One is that students quickly learn whether or not they truly are suited to the actual work; two is that they are ready to apply what they know when they go out on their internships. Our faculty's mission is to make certain that their students are prepared both for work, and for decision-making in a rapidly changing world. In a very real sense, though the faculty mix a healthy dose of research into their duties, their commitment is to their students' careers. That their dedication pays off is evident in the fact that 98% of our graduates either are gainfully employed or have transferred to the next degree level. We are proud of our service as a public institution of higher learning.
- The teacher population of 130 teachers has stayed relatively flat over five years.

We look at why millions of Americans are choosing community college over a traditional four-year school today.
Many students enroll in community college with the intent of transferring to a four-year school. Of those who do, many succeed, and yet traditional colleges and universities continue to overlook them. Read on to learn more about why more community college students don’t transfer schools and to receive some tips for making the transfer yourself.
Community college is the only option for many students who either can’t afford a traditional four-year university or who need a more flexible school environment. Just because community college is different, however, doesn’t mean that its students matter any less. The Aspen Prize exists to encourage community colleges to do more for their students and to continually strive for improvement.
