The SUNY Puerto Rico Task Force channels significant expertise and service capacity from across the broad SUNY community to partner with educational, governmental, and non-governmental entities in Puerto Rico. The Task Force supports the Island's short- and long-term efforts to recover and re-build a sustainable, resilient, and vibrant Puerto Rico. The assembled panel will discuss the successes that have been achieved since the founding of the Task Force as well as future goals and solutions to ongoing challenges on the island of Puerto Rico and elsewhere in the region.
