"It was an honor to be a part of the strategic planning process," said Raymond Cross, president of Morrisville State College. "I am excited about this plan and the commitment embedded in every paragraph. This is not your traditional academic strategic plan - it is bold, exciting, and real, and certainly demands attention. It calls for action, requires commitment, and will aggressively move SUNY and all of New York forward. Every campus and community should be eager to help make this vision a reality."

The Power of SUNY explores the many issues affecting New York State and the State University community, while identifying six "big ideas":
  • SUNY and the Entrepreneurial Century
  • SUNY and the Seamless Educational Pipeline
  • SUNY and a Healthier New York
  • SUNY and an Energy-Smart New York
  • SUNY and the Vibrant Community
  • SUNY and the World
