Summer Enrichment Instructors

SUNY Adirondack is a teaching- and learning-centered community college, which fosters a diverse and equitable learning environment for students of all ages, backgrounds, goals, and learning styles. A member of the State University of New York, located in the foothills of the Adirondack Mountains, one hour north of Albany and thirty minutes from Saratoga Springs.  Our size is intimate, with only 4,000 full and part-time students, yet we offer more than 30 unique academic programs that prepare students for both work and transfer to four-year schools. A four-year degree is attainable on campus through our SUNY Plattsburgh extension center. While many of our students are first generation college educated and from rural areas in Upstate New York, we are excited by the influx of students from downstate and out of state who can now live in our new 400-bed residence hall.  

From interactive classroom instruction to one-one-one guidance outside of class, our faculty and staff are committed to both personal and public transformation through education, with an emphasis on critical and creative thinking. With population of 23% returning adults and 15% people of color, SUNY Adirondack maintains a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion and to the welfare of its growing multicultural student body.

We strongly encourage applications from minorities and other underrepresented groups. A demonstrated commitment to working with a diverse student population and to the values of inclusion, engagement, and equity is imperative.

The SUNY Adirondack Office of Continuing Education is seeking new course proposals and instructors for its 2020 Summer Enrichment Program at the Queensbury campus July 6, 2020 – 23, 2020.

Courses will run for three weeks, Monday through Thursday, with an open house for students to showcase their achievements on the evening of July 23, 2020.

Three time slots for courses will be offered: 8:15 to 10:15 a.m.; 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.; and 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Students are grouped into two levels: those entering grades 4-6 and 7–10.

Courses should be designed to give students opportunities to explore new subject matter, learn new skills or express and enrich their creative and artistic abilities. New course proposals designed to meet the expanding needs and interests of students in STEM, cooking, arts and crafts, outdoor activities, building and hands-on activities are encouraged.
