Dr. Casey Crabill is Onondaga Community College’s eighth President, leading Central New York’s second largest undergraduate college with nearly 13,000 students, 550 full and part-time faculty and staff and 460 adjunct faculty members, and an annual operating budget of $78 million. Founded in 1962, Onondaga is a two-year college operating under the State University of New York (SUNY) system, and is locally sponsored by Onondaga County.
Onondaga Community College’s 280-acre main campus is located on scenic Onondaga Hill, approximately four miles from the city of Syracuse. The campus includes eight academic buildings, the state-of-the-art SRC Arena and Events Center, an athletics complex, and four residence halls accommodating nearly 800 residential students. It also operates a North Site satellite campus in Liverpool. Onondaga offers nearly 50 programs of study; bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees available on campus through its regional higher education center, and more than 80 transfer agreements with four-year colleges and universities throughout the region and country. The College also offers extensive community education and workforce development programs, including classes for professional and personal development, customized training for local businesses, and special programs for small business, children and teens, and other important audiences.
The College strives to provide the full college experience through programs which enrich student life. The Arts Across Campus program offers a year-round schedule of arts and cultural activities for students, faculty and staff and the community. Onondaga offers an intramurals program and 15 intercollegiate men’s and women’s athletic teams, including the seven-time NJCAA national champion men’s lacrosse team and the two-time NJCAA national champion women’s lacrosse team.
In 1962, Onondaga Community College opened its doors to 500 entering freshmen at Midtown Plaza in the urban center of Syracuse, New York. Outgrowing the city center location, the College moved to its present site in 1973.
We are situated on 280 acres atop Onondaga Hill, four miles from the city, with a commanding view of the city, Onondaga and Oneida lakes and beyond. A newly renovated and expanded Gordon Student Center opened in spring 2006. By far, the largest transformation on campus began with the long-awaited November 2005 groundbreaking of residence halls. Opening for the start of the 2006-2007 academic year, the residence halls will forever change the face of the campus and mark a significant turning point in the history of the college.
The curricula have been expanded from an original offering of eight programs to nearly 50; the faculty has grown to keep pace with enrollment; the original graduating class of 1962 numbered 177. Now, nearly 1,500 degrees are awarded annually. Enrollment has grown from the original 500 to nearly 13,000 students. More than 40,000 persons have graduated since 1964, and over half a million people have availed themselves of the college's programs and services.
