SASA NY is an Auxiliary organization. Auxiliary organizations are non-profit, separately organized legal entities, created to support student success and the educational mission of SUNY by providing program and service support not normally furnished by the state budget. SUNY established auxiliaries to complement the core academic programs at each campus. Auxiliary organizations perform essential functions associated with postsecondary educational institutions, which under NYS law are difficult, cumbersome, or legally restricted and not supported by state funding. Auxiliary organizations enhance budgetary flexibility, manage risk and exposure, shield against liability, and increase investment opportunities.
