A little history about the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley

Chartered by the New York State Board of Regents in 1970, the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley is an independent not-for-profit educational consortium with four members: Clarkson University, SUNY Canton, SUNY Potsdam and St. Lawrence University.

The consortium was created as a regional multipurpose organization to expand the number and variety of educational opportunities for students, faculty and the community, to share resources, to avoid needless duplication and to innovate through joint action.

Today, the Associated Colleges achieves this mission through a host of activities that range from coordination of cross-registration in courses between the colleges to hosting inter-university conferences and events, from convening communities of similar practice to joint contracting. The Associated Colleges is pleased to include in this array of activities the collaborative assistance to new faculty/staff and their spouses/partners in their relocation to the Canton-Potsdam area.
