SUNY Empire Stories
Personal attention. Expert guidance. Deep expertise. These are the hallmarks of Empire State University's 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 first design your degree program to the day you walk across the stage at commencement. And your faculty mentor will be there for you online, onsite, or wherever and however you choose to study.
Your faculty mentor:
- Treats you as an individual
- Provides guidance
- Helps you develop your degree program
- Conducts 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.
