The Research Council is an advisory council to the SUNY Board of Trustees, the Research Foundation Baord of Directors, the SUNY Provost and Campus Presidents. The SUNY Research Council lends deep and broad thinking and understanding to the question of SUNY's leadership as a 21st Century public comprehensive research-intensive university system. The Council considers and advises SUNY on strategies that encourage and nurture research as one of the primary missions of the University. The work of the Council informs strategic and operational planning at SUNY and the Research Foundation.
