SUNY Brockport serves a diverse student body of over 7,100 undergraduate and 1,100 graduate students enrolled in 50 undergraduate majors and more than 50 masters’ programs, teacher certification programs and advanced graduate certificates supported by more than 750 instructional faculty and professional staff. The College is an inclusive learning community that inspires excellence through growth, engagement, and transformation.

The College is located along the famous Erie Canal, in the village of Brockport in western New York State, a region known for its low cost of living and stable housing market. The College benefits from a small-town atmosphere, even while located near major metropolitan cities. Brockport is:

  • 16 miles west of the city of Rochester, which is the home of the Rochester Institute of Technology, the University of Rochester, the Eastman School of Music, the Strong National Museum of Play, and the Rochester Red Wings AAA baseball franchise;
  • 45 miles east of Buffalo, which is the home of the University of Buffalo, the Bills NFL franchise, and the Sabres NHL franchise;
  • 75 miles from Niagara Falls USA, which features the American, Horseshoe and Bridal Veil Falls;
  • 140 miles from Toronto, the largest city in Canada and the home of the University of Toronto; and
  • 350 miles from the many attractions of New York City.
  • The area features a number of technology companies, including Paychex, Xerox, and Kodak, and other large companies such as Wegmans and Excellus. Rochester and its suburbs feature some of the highest-quality public, private, parochial, and charter schools in New York State. The region is known for its natural beauty, including Lake Ontario, the Genesee River (with three major waterfalls in Letchworth State Park), and the Finger Lakes region with its notable vineyards and wineries.

    Salary and Benefits

    $2,750 per 3 credit hour course (this amount may vary and if it does it requires the Dean’s office and the Provost’s office approval.) Health insurance is available to part-time faculty who teach six or more credits, contact hours, or credit equivalents per semester.
