From your first steps on campus, you’ll feel the spirit of Cortland. It’s an energy that extends from the classroom to competition to the community.

SUNY Cortland stands out as one of New York’s top public universities — a medium-sized school that offers academic strength across 68 majors, a high quality of student life and a degree that pays back graduates.

Reputations in teacher education and health-related majors laid the foundation for exciting new programs related to business, natural sciences, the arts and specialized professional fields.

Our students, faculty and staff members are invested in the world around them. Whether it’s a class assignment, independent research or a passion project, Red Dragons look to make a difference.

With more than 1,400 employees, we are the leading employer in the City of Cortland and in Cortland County, and we’re also one of the most desirable places to work.

Job seekers will find competitive salaries, outstanding benefits and an invigorating work environment with full access to Cortland’s exceptional recreation and fitness facilities, library and other resources.

We offer full- and part-time employment in academic, administrative and staff positions, plus a wide range of employment opportunities for undergraduates and graduate students, including graduate assistantships.

Also offering employment opportunities on campus are two affiliated organizations, Cortland Auxiliary and the Research Foundation of SUNY.

Cortland Auxiliary is a private, not-for-profit organization that provides the SUNY Cortland community with food services and the Campus Store, to name a few. 

The Research Foundation for SUNY is a private, nonprofit educational corporation that administers externally funded contracts and grants that support research and discovery for and on behalf of SUNY Cortland. The Research Foundation offers professional, research, day care, tutoring and clerical employment opportunities.
