Job Description

SUNY Morrisville, a college that leverages the expansive resources of the State University of New York, is a model of innovative applied education. Located in the center of New York State, the college offers students hands-on, experiential learning in modern classrooms and specialized facilities, many of which are rare or one-of-a-kind in higher education. Morrisville’s 3,000 students – who come from diverse backgrounds across the state and around the world – choose from more than 80 associate and bachelor degree programs that embrace agriculture, technology, business, social sciences, including Psychology, Criminal Justice, and the liberal arts. An internship program that prepares students for success in the 21st-century workplace ranks among the top ten in the nation. At Morrisville, motivated students work alongside talented faculty members – many with field experience – to imagine, build, and test practical, sustainable solutions to some of the fundamental questions confronting a shrinking world with diminishing resources.

The Morrisville campus is 30 miles southeast of Syracuse and 30 miles southwest of Utica; it is a half-hour drive from the New York State Thruway with easy access to Albany (two hours), Rochester (two hours), Buffalo (three hours) and New York City (four hours).

The Norwich Campus of SUNY Morrisville has been serving the Norwich community and the surrounding areas for more than 46 years, offering students associate degree and certificate options such as Criminal Justice, Human Services, Business Administration, and Nursing. The campus is also used by businesses, not-for-profits and community partners for training, events and videoconferencing.

The Syracuse Educational Opportunity Center (EOC), administered by SUNY Morrisville, provides the urban community of Syracuse with innovative academic programs leading to higher education as well as vocational training programs leading to gainful employment and economic self-sufficiency.
