The 12-Point Plan for Substance Abuse Prevention and Health Enhancement
This plan, established in 1999, is a comprehensive environmental management approach to reducing student substance abuse and preventing related violence. It was cited as an exemplary program by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 1999 and as a model program by the U.S. Department of Education in 2000.

Improvements in Career Advising
A 6-stage model proposed by a University task force in 1997 was implemented by the 18 career advising units at SU and the SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF). It serves as the framework for participation among the school- and college-based units and the Center for Career Services. Students now take advantage of comprehensive services and resources that complement academic programs and enable them to successfully make the transition from undergraduate life to satisfying careers.

The Office of Multicultural Affairs (OMA)
This unit was created in 1997 to more clearly reflect activities that had previously been supported by the Office of the Associate Dean for Student Relations. OMA identifies and addresses the needs of students of color and supports ethnic relations and diversity issues for the University as a whole.

The planned reduction in undergraduate enrollment that began in 1990-91 has enabled the University to be more selective in admissions and to improve services to students.

After the cost of instruction, financial aid is now the second largest component of the budget. More than $100 million in grants and scholarships go to students each year, reflecting the University's commitment to attracting the best students.
