Provost's Office

Ann McClellanMessage from Dr. Ann McClellan, Provost

On behalf of the entire Academic Affairs faculty and staff, welcome to SUNY Cortland! We are excited to welcome you into this vibrant intellectual community. As Chief Academic Officer, part of my role, along with the academic deans, department chairs, student success professionals, faculty, and staff, is to provide undergraduate and graduate students with the highest quality educational experience, both within and outside the classroom. At SUNY Cortland, you will be exposed to diverse ideas, experiences, and cultures through our rich academic curriculum, engaging campus programming, and myriad applied and pre-professional learning opportunities like internships and research opportunities. One way we accomplish that goal is by recruiting, retaining, and supporting outstanding and diverse faculty who make positive contributions to the university, their disciplines, and to you—our students.
