Welcome to the College of Environmental Science and Forestry

The 21st century will be defined by environmental challenges of unprecedented number and complexity—and how society responds to them. The SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry is at the forefront of confronting these challenges: educating tomorrow's leaders, opening new possibilities, and inspiring the public to engage in creating a better future.

For more than a century, ESF has been unique among institutions of higher learning in its singular focus on environmental discovery, learning, and sustainability. We offer the excellence of a small campus education in an atmosphere of big ideas. Located in a transcendent triangle, ESF simultaneously offers life in a top-20 small college city, thousands of acres of living laboratory in the Adirondacks, and easy access to New York City. For those who love the natural world, it doesn't get any better than this.

A combination of students among the best in the nation and a faculty of international leaders in their fields create an environment of excellence and boundless possibilities. Discover why ESF is consistently ranked among the best values among its peers. Explore our Web pages. Visit our campus. Talk to our students. Meet our faculty. Find out for yourself the remarkable breadth and depth of our academic, research, and public outreach programs.

Fortunately, challenges and opportunities come in equal measure. ESF is boldly envisioning new and creative ways in which we can meet society's needs today while avoiding the destruction or diminishment of the natural world, living resources, and options open to humans in the future. Whether your passion lies in designing better human-built environments, conserving and understanding biological diversity, or engineering better ways to meet the needs of human survival, ESF is in a league of its own.
