Coordinator of Teaching and Learning Collaborative
SUNY Adirondack is a teaching- and learning-centered community college, which fosters a diverse and equitable learning environment for students of all ages, backgrounds, goals, and learning styles. A member of the State University of New York, located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, one hour north of Albany and thirty minutes from Saratoga Springs. Our size is intimate, with only 4,000 full and part-time students, yet we offer more than 30 unique academic programs that prepare students for both work and transfer to four-year schools. A four-year degree is attainable on campus through our SUNY Plattsburgh extension center. While many of our students are first generation college educated and from rural areas in Upstate New York, we are excited by the influx of students from downstate and out of state who can now live in our new 400-bed residence hall.
From interactive classroom instruction to one-one-one guidance outside of class, our faculty and staff are committed to both personal and public transformation through education, with an emphasis on critical and creative thinking. With population of 23% returning adults and 15% people of color, SUNY Adirondack maintains a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion and to the welfare of its growing multicultural student body.
We strongly encourage applications from minorities and other underrepresented groups. A demonstrated commitment to working with a diverse student population and to the values of inclusion, engagement, and equity is imperative.
