The College Faculty

The faculty of SUNY Brockport is characterized by a dedication to excellence in teaching, research and service. Three-quarters of SUNY Brockport's more than 300 full-time faculty members hold doctoral degrees, and more than 50 have received the prestigious Chancellor's Award for Excellence in Teaching since its inception in 1973. Twelve faculty and emeriti have been awarded the title Distinguished Professor, SUNY's highest faculty rank and a statewide recognition which places our best faculty among the top in New York and nationwide. Five of SUNY Brockport's faculty members have been Fulbright Scholars in the past five years. Also in the past five years, our faculty and staff have received 417 research grants totaling $16.5 million. In addition, Brockport's faculty and staff are widely published scholars in disciplines ranging from poetry and literature to history, sociology, the environment, zoology, criminal justice, philosophy, etc.

Part-time faculty, drawn primarily from Rochester-area practitioners in business, industry, and the professions, keep SUNY Brockport students aware of current practices in rapidly changing fields. Academic advisement is provided students by faculty within their major fields.

Finally, our faculty and staff are dedicated to building a better world community. They serve on the boards of national and international scholarly organizations--and as volunteers right in our own neighborhoods.

The Student Body

SUNY Brockport draws undergraduate students from every county in New York state, from 28 other states, and from a number of foreign countries. Approximately 68 percent of our under graduates come from the cities, suburbs and villages of Western New York; one in 20 comes from the metropolitan New York City area and adjoining Long Island. Nearly 1,800 graduate students seeking advanced degrees, pursuing teacher certification, or otherwise upgrading their professional skills, add a further dimension to campus life. Adult students (25 and older) represent nearly 40 percent of the student body.
