SUNY Cortland tenure track faculty are responsible for contributing to an academic community dedicated to diverse learning experiences.

Faculty are expected to maintain a routine presence on campus to support our Campus Values of Focusing on the Students, Integrity, and Intellectual Life, and serve our Campus Priorities of Academic Excellence, Transformational Education, Well-being, and the Maximization of Resources.
The Health Department, housed in the School of Professional Studies, offers CAEP accredited school health education programs at the bachelor’s and master’s degree levels, a CEPH accredited undergraduate program in community/public health, a human services studies program, a master’s degree in community health, and a new interdisciplinary healthcare management undergraduate degree in conjunction with the Economics Department.
