A great education should develop disciplined minds and shatter preconceived notions. It should unlock opportunities for meaningful careers and advanced degrees.
The Brockport experience
Students thrive when they’re engaged. No SUNY campus will engage you like The College at Brockport. Work side-by-side with our faculty on groundbreaking undergraduate research projects; participate in service learning that will allow you to utilize the skills you learn in the classroom to make a difference outside of it; and take advantage of the opportunity to explore the globe through our robust international education program.
Engage both your mind and heart through these and countless other innovative activities inside and outside the classroom. We call this The Brockport Experience.
Four core values
We are committed to making The Brockport Experience transformative for all students by remaining true to our four core values:
Live and learn in a diverse, inclusive community in which every member plays an essential part.
Engage in purposeful and rewarding educational and cocurricular activities in your local, regional, and even national and global communities.
Be inspired to uniquely excel, achieving your maximum potential in everything you do.
Encounter deep, sustainable, and meaningful change and growth throughout a journey of continual improvement.
The College at Brockport has a small-school feel but offers big-school opportunities. Our promise is to engage you each day in cultivating your capacity for intellectual, physical, and creative accomplishment.
A liberal arts education
The world is changing. Rapidly. An education from The College at Brockport will prepare you for what the future brings.
The Brockport academic experience will instill an intellectual curiosity in you that will help you leap life’s hurdles. The core of this experience is an environment that emphasizes the development of superior skills in writing, speaking, critical thinking, and mathematical analysis—abilities that will always be in high demand. Those courses are complemented by a vast array of professional programs that will prepare you for the career of your dreams.
As part of a liberal arts education, you’ll take general education classes in subjects such as English, history, math, and science—in addition to courses in your chosen field of study. Hands-on learning takes place in the classroom, in the community, and even internationally. This broad curriculum will equip you with a diverse understanding that will prepare you for the rest of your life.
Outside the classroom
Learning shouldn’t be confined to the four walls of the classroom. At The College at Brockport, it isn’t.
It takes place in our Living Learning Communities, where you can choose to live with others of similar academic interests. It takes place in our award-winning Leadership Development Program, which prepares you to make positive change. And it takes place on the playing field, as Brockport offers 23 NCAA Division III varsity sports and more than 20 club sports.
Our faculty and staff work diligently to ensure your successful transition to Brockport—and our hundreds of cocurricular clubs, programs, and activities help you excel once you do.
