    Mr. Richard Meade
    Faculty/Staff Recruitment Office
    SUNY College at Brockport
    350 New Campus Drive
    Brockport, NY 14420-2929

    SUNY College at Brockport is an Equal Opportunity, Affirmative Action
    employer. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.


    SUNY, College at Brockport is located in the village of Brockport in the
    western part of New York State. Brockport is about 15 miles west of
    Rochester and 60 miles east of Buffalo. The village is home to
    approximately 9,800 residents and sits on the banks of the historic Erie
    Canal. The College is adjacent to the village and campus is within easy
    walking distance of the shops, churches, restaurants, and cinemas that
    line Main Street.

    The College at Brockport is a comprehensive college that has “student
    success” as the cornerstone of its mission. Over 6,500 FTE
    undergraduate students and approximately 1,800 FTE graduate students are
    enrolled at Brockport. The College offers undergraduate majors in 38
    different disciplines and Master’s programs in 16 academic areas
    (including a large Master of Science in Education program).

    The Department of Physical Education and Sport is the largest department
    on campus. Approximately 700 undergraduate students major in physical
    education and over 100 graduate students (mostly part-timers) are
    pursuing graduate degrees. Twenty-nine full-time faculty and
    professional staff teach classes in the department. Eleven of those
    individuals have joint responsibilities with either athletics or campus
    recreation. Currently, 15 of the 18 tenure-track faculty assigned
    strictly to physical education hold doctoral degrees (and the other
    three are ABD).

    The aim of the undergraduate academic major is to produce graduates who
    are “physically educated.” As such, the core of the major is focused on
    the study of motor skill and physical fitness. Students learn the
    principles for acquiring skill and fitness, seek to improve their own
    levels of skill and fitness, and learn to appreciate the contributions
    of skill and fitness to human development. In addition to the major,
    most students also pursue one or more professional concentrations.
    Professional concentrations include teacher education (with an option in
    adapted physical education), exercise physiology, athletic training, and
    sport management. At the graduate level, curricular options include
    pedagogy, adapted physical education, and athletic administration.
