This is a great place to work on so many levels. I think that the main thing that makes SUNY New Paltz so great is the competence, intelligence and compassion of the leadership here, from the President on down the line. The administration truly cares about their employees and works hard to create a civil and inclusive environment.
The benefit package is among the best in the nation and the campus culture is one of mutual respect. Perks include access to relevant lectures and presentations, the Samuel Dorsky Museum (visit on your lunch break!), membership in the Athletic, Wellness and Recreation center, which offers classes specifically for staff and faculty, book club, yoga classes, library and great student performances.
Let's not forget proximity to all the great restaurants and shopping in the quaint village of New Paltz and the views of the Gunks!
