SUNY PRODiG Fellowship

The SUNY PRODiG Fellowship represents a collaborative effort of the thirteen comprehensive colleges in the SUNY system. The program consists of a three-pronged approach to increase faculty diversity on our campuses.

Eligible candidates for this two-year program include late-stage ABDs or post-docs who are underrepresented minorities faculty in general and women faculty of all races in STEM fields.

The focus of the collaborative is to introduce early-career diverse faculty to opportunities at a comprehensive college, and will provide outstanding mentorship and support to increase future success and retention as faculty. The program will provide intentional support toward degree completion, teaching experience in the individual’s field of expertise, and faculty development at one of the SUNY comprehensive colleges.

PRODiG Fellows will receive a two-year non-renewable contract with a base salary of $55,000, travel and conference registration allowances, summer research stipends, moving expenses, and reduced teaching load. Annual compensation is competitive. Fellows will be paired with a campus senior faculty member to help facilitate integration and support, and will be a part of a larger cohort of PRODiG Fellows across the SUNY system who will meet (both face-to-face and virtually) throughout the two-year fellowship. The fellowship is open to a wide range of fields.

SUNY Brockport is accepting PRODiG Fellows applications for the 2021-22 academic year. We are accepting applicants in all disciplines for which we have department support. See the full list of program majors and minors with links to departments.

SUNY Brockport PRODiG Steering Committee

Promoting Recruitment, Opportunity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Growth


The purpose of the PRODiG Steering Committee is to provide guidance to the Provost and Academic Affairs division by suggesting ways to create a more diverse, welcoming and supportive atmosphere for faculty and staff at SUNY Brockport. This will be accomplished by evaluating faculty recruitment, retention, hiring, tenure, promotion and pipeline data and initiatives on campus.


This is a standing advisory committee in Academic Affairs and is chaired by the Provost. Members will serve a two-year staggered term. Brockport’s Chief Diversity Officer and Human Resources Diversity Recruiter will serve in an advisory capacity to this committee. The recruitment process for committee members will be determined during 2020-21.
