The School of Education, Health & Human Services at the State University of New York (SUNY) Brockport, is committed to fostering a diverse, inclusive, socially engaged community of scholars who prioritize teaching, research, and service that address educational, economic, health and social disparities. Addressing and combatting structural inequities, particularly racism, is central to the vision, mission, and work of the School of Education, Health & Human Services. We believe that improving opportunities and outcomes for underrepresented minoritized individuals and communities requires a concentration of scholars who, from their varied disciplinary backgrounds, are committed to addressing and challenging racism and other forms of systemic oppression. Doing so effectively requires innovations in pedagogy and research; we seek scholar-activists from a range of disciplines who are committed to challenging racist practices and (re)shaping scholarship around race, racism and (in)equity to improve access, opportunity, and policy across society in pursuit of equitable and inclusive classrooms and organizations.
The lines included in this cluster reside in separate departments in the School of Education, Health & Human Services, but we see them conceptualized as working together over time on scholarship and programs of shared interest. Candidates should also feel welcome to work closely with others in their home departments.
Priority status will be given to applicants making strong and innovative contributions to their field; with experience working effectively with racially minoritized students; who have developed and demonstrated critical pedagogy skills; and who have engaged their academic and local communities to address vital social issues.
