State University Construction Fund
The State University Construction Fund is a New York State agency addressing the construction and capital planning needs of the State University of New York and affiliated institutions.
The official mission of the fund is, "to provide academic buildings, dormitories and other facilities including academic incubator facilities and a pharmaceutical research, development which may also include a manufacturing facility for the state-operated institutions and contract and statutory colleges under the jurisdiction of the state university, to reduce the time lag between determination of need for such facilities and actual occupancy thereof, to expedite the construction, acquisition, reconstruction, rehabilitation or improvement of such facilities and to assure that the same are ready for the purposes intended when needed and when scheduled under the approved master plan of the state university; with respect to university-related economic development projects authorized by law pursuant to section three hundred seventy-two-a of this article, to act as agent for the state university or for a foundation or other not-for-profit entity created by or for the state university."
The fund is run by a three-person Board of Trustees. One trustee is selected from the members of the SUNY Board of Trustees, and the other two are nominated by the Governor and confirmed by the State Senate.
