Vision & Mission
New Paltz faculty will be gifted at (and care about) their teaching. But they will also be meaningfully and consistently engaged in scholarship and creative activity that is shared with (and evaluated by) scholars and critics in the broader intellectual community. The pace and volume of such scholarly/creative activity will be more modest than is the case for faculty at a research university, but the quality will still be high.
Hiring and retaining faculty who are serious about both their scholarship and teaching.
