Many real colleges & universities have academic departments with bigger payrolls than the entire operating budgets of both SUNY campuses. Certainly it makes sense to consolidate a lot of the back-office administrative services to free up more money for faculty, departments, and scholarships. At Clarkson, for instance, students go to one office (Student Administrative Services) to take care of e.g. paying tuition, applying for financial aid, registering for classes, and everything else not directly pertinent to their field of study. Potsdam and Canton both send their students through a cumbersome, byzantine administrative maze. Getting things done requires a hellish game of bureaucratic pinball, which takes valuable time away from the studies and work the students (or their families) paid/borrowed so dearly for.
