Welcome to SUNY College at Brockport, and welcome to an important project--namely, your success. For this project to be completed, you and we, the College, will have to form a partnership. Your responsibility will be to set high expectations for yourself and work conscientiously to fulfill those expectations. Our responsibility will be to provide all the needed enabling conditions for your success--outstanding faculty and staff, excellent programs, many opportunities for student research, extensive facilities, and a rich variety of co-curricular programs. This Graduate Catalog is a comprehensive guide to the many resources which the College has to offer.
What exactly do we mean by your success? In the first instance, we mean substantial learning and growth on your part. We hope that, as a result of your experience at the College, you will develop, among other things, the capacity to think critically and creatively, an understanding of, and the ability to, conduct research, and the disposition to see yourself as a human being who is bound to other human beings by ties of recognition and concern. The knowledge, skills, and dispositions that you acquire will serve you well in all that you do--career, citizenship, and fulfilling life. They will also serve you for a lifetime.
In addition to being an important reference, this catalog is a good place for you to begin your exploration of SUNY College at Brockport. You have my best wishes.
