The State University of New York’s Russia Programs Network (RPN), formed in 2013, coordinates SUNY’s partnerships with Russian institutions of higher education. Our main mission in Russia is to work with major universities in the Russian Federation to expand and deepen opportunities in Russia for SUNY students and faculty, and at SUNY for Russian students and faculty. Furthermore, we work with SUNY campuses in the development of Russian language and Russian Studies courses, exchanges, online collaboration, and to enable SUNY and Russian scholars to pursue collaborative research and to share the results of their individual and collaborative work in jointly sponsored conferences.
The Director of the SUNY Russia Programs Network is John Frederick Bailyn, Professor and Doctoral Program Director, Department of Linguistics, Stony Brook University; co-Director, NY-St. Petersburg Institute of Linguistics, Cognition and Culture

The SUNY-Stony Brook-St. Petersburg University Center, a joint Center for international programs and interdisciplinary studies on the campus of St. Petersburg State University, was founded in 2006. The Center coordinates joint SUNY/St. Petersburg initiatives, including faculty exchanges, cross-cultural forums, student exchanges and study abroad programs, conferences, and the NY-St. Petersburg Institute of Linguistics, Cognition and Culture (held every summer in St. Petersburg).

The SUNY office in Moscow is located in the main building at Moscow State University and was created as a result of the close relationship between SUNY and Moscow State University that goes back to the mid 1970s, when the State University of New York's University at Albany campus began the first direct academic relationship with a Soviet university. The Moscow Center coordinates joint SUNY/St. Petersburg initiatives, including faculty exchanges, cross-cultural forums, student exchanges and study abroad programs and conferences.
