The lifeblood of any academic institution is its faculty. Among the more than 300 full-time faculty at Oswego are Fulbright scholars, noted researchers, gifted artists and writers, and winners of many different awards.
Our faculty have earned research grants research from such agencies as NASA, the Smithsonian Institution, and the National Science Foundation, to name just a few. Several have received SUNY Chancellor’s recognition for outstanding research contributions. Students benefit from daily contact with these scholars, who often share their research interests with them.
Faculty actively engage in scholarly and creative activities with colleagues and students. Through Faculty Assembly, they also take an active role in decision-making for the institution.
Our faculty have distinguished themselves through their innovative methods, research prowess, and ability to connect with students. Many of these teachers have earned such recognition as the SUNY-wide rank of Distinguished Teaching Professor, Chancellor's Awards for Excellence in Teaching, President's Awards for Scholarly and Creative Activity and Research and President's Awards for Advisement Excellence.
Oswego's professors have also won national and international awards for their books, research, and scholarship. But all the awards are only icing on the cake. At our learner-centered institution, faculty know that helping our students grow and realize a better future, one person at a time provides the greatest rewards imaginable
