Faculty Mentors: Personal Attention and Expert Guidance

Personal attention. Expert guidance. Deep expertise. These are the hallmarks of SUNY Empire’s dedicated and distinguished faculty members.

As a SUNY Empire student, you’ll work with a designated faculty mentor who will serve as your own personal guide and resource – from the day you sit down to design your degree program to the day you walk across the stage at graduation. And your faculty mentor will be there for you online, onsite or wherever and however you choose to study.

Every student at Empire State College is assigned a mentor, a faculty member who serves as your own personal guide and resource. Your faculty mentor:

  • treats you as an individual
  • provides guidance from orientation through graduation
  • helps you develop a degree program and conduct a review of your prior learning
  • coordinates your work with other faculty

Our more than 1,300 full- and part-time faculty come from an impressive array of educational and professional backgrounds, and more than 90 percent of our full-time faculty hold a Ph.D. or the highest degree in their field.
