SUNY Morrisville invites inquiries, nominations, and applications for the position of Provost, effective January 2023. The Provost reports directly to the President and oversees all academic areas on campus.
Established in 1908 as the New York State School of Agriculture, SUNY Morrisville became a founding member of the State University of New York (SUNY) in 1948. Later it became known as the SUNY College of Agriculture and Technology at Morrisville and is now one of the tech sector campuses within SUNY, offering 23 bachelor's degrees, 52 associate degrees, three certificate programs, and has recently been authorized to offer a master's degree. The College identifies as a teaching institution where faculty are experts experienced in their field and dedicated to their students.
SUNY Morrisville has campuses in Morrisville, Norwich, and Syracuse. Located in Madison County (only 30 miles from Utica and Syracuse), Morrisville boasts a rural setting and a very diverse student population. There is easy access to Albany (2 hours), Rochester (2 hours), Buffalo (3 hours), and New York City (4 hours).
Currently, the Provost oversees working with Academic Deans and Division Chairs both in the School of Liberal Arts, Sciences, and Society (LASS) and the School of Agriculture, Business, and Technology (ABT). In addition, the Provost oversees Library Services, Registrar's Office and Institutional Research, Tutoring Services, C-STEP/STEP, the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP), the Norwich Campus, Workforce Development and Career Services, the Environmental Training Center (ETC), and Instructional Design.
As a relatively small campus, the relationship between the faculty, staff, and administration is vital to the functioning of the College as well as to the overall sense of community valued by employees and students. As such, the Provost is the primary link between the administration and the faculty/staff governance body, College Senate.
The Provost helps to set the tone and agenda for the shared governance structure, working alongside the President of College Senate. The next Provost will work closely with administrators, faculty, and staff to advance and develop strategic initiatives, solve complex issues facing the college and higher education, and assist with adapting and adopting policies, programs, and structures in a transparent and collegial way. Building on the strong legacy that began in 1908 and continues through the present, the Provost will work with a dedicated senior leadership team, as well as a passionate and hard-working faculty and staff.
