SUNY Geneseo and the Village of Geneseo recently renewed the Geneseo Village-College Relations Compact. At the Community Chat on November 10, Geneseo Mayor Margaret Duff and SUNY Geneseo President Denise Battles jointly signed the amended compact, which represents a mutual commitment to the common good and the strong bond that exists between college and community.
“One of the principal determinants of the quality of the SUNY Geneseo student experience and the quality of life for the residents in the Village of Geneseo is the cooperative relationship that exists between the College and the Village,” says Battles. “This compact is a set of principles that describe what the Village and College can expect of each other, what both can expect from students, and what students can expect from community members.”
The compact has been revised since its inception in 2012 to account for the changing environment. For more information, visit the Village/College Compact.
