Academic Excellence and Innovation

Education, evolved.

A professor and student working in a civil engineering lab.

Experts in their fields, York College professors go beyond the textbook to guide students' learning through hands-on projects and collaborative research with community partners. As teacher-researchers, our faculty convey and exemplify the value of experimentation and critical thinking to yield intellectual discovery. This passion for thoughtful inquiry and engaged discovery through teaching-centered research is the cornerstone of York College's student-focused brand. At York College, results matter. And our professors diligently guide students toward that end with every class. Investments in academic excellence and innovation support academic programs, lectures and awards, student research/student internships/student co-ops, faculty development, innovation grants for new programming, and the Civil Engineering Center building.
