In the early 1990’s, SUNY-Farmingdale revises its mission from a two-year agricultural school to a four-year college of technology, in order to secure its place in the SUNY system. At the same time, the College must deal with budget cuts as great as $4 million a year and declining enrollments. Through a series of program and personnel cuts, the College is able to increase its four-year offerings, fine tune its mission, and develop entrepreneurial strategies to generate revenue.
