    Challenging and Supportive Faculty

    "I consistently felt both challenged and supported by the department's knowledgeable and accessible faculty, which was exactly what I needed... to grow as a writer, critical thinker, and person. I frequently find myself thinking about how grateful I am for the quality preparation I received for graduate work during my time at Brockport."

    — Mark Satta, PhD student at Purdue
