The State University of New York (SUNY) Cortland Diversity Faculty Fellows Program aims to attract diverse faculty of promise to our campus. We intend to hire up to five fellows each year who demonstrate a diversity of thought and experience in both their personal and scholarly pursuits. Seeking early career scholars to gain experience in a full-time faculty position in a supportive, inclusive environment. Fellows will support the infusion of topics related to equity and inclusion in the departmental and/or college-wide curriculum inside and outside the classroom.

SUNY Cortland is an engaged learning community that is committed to promoting a diversity of thought and experience. We believe that an equitable, inclusive and diverse campus and curriculum are critical to our educational mission.

Expect to maintain a routine presence on campus to support the campus values of Focus on the Students, Integrity, and Intellectual Life as well as serve the campus priorities of Academic Excellence, Transformational Education, Well-being, and the Maximization of Resources.

Fellows are tenure-track faculty members of their respective departments; report to the department chair; are a small dynamic cohort of new academics who work collectively to support an inclusive community and campus climate, and; enhance the cultural, academic and professional experience of groups traditionally under-represented in higher education (e.g., students of color, women in STEM fields, low income and first-generation students and LGBTQ+ community) and will maintain working relationships with the chief diversity and inclusion officer and the director of the Multicultural Life and Diversity Office.

SUNY Cortland, a comprehensive college known for superb programs designed to support a commitment to civic responsibility, environmental responsibility, international education, professional education and social justice is one of 64 campuses in the State University of New York system. The State University of New York is a quality public university that combines world-renowned faculty, dedicated staff, and a truly diverse body of talented students to pursue its mission in every corner of the state: “to learn, to search, to serve.”
