Academic Programs

SUNY Center for Professional Development (SUNY CPD) Academic Programs are designed for the academic communities comprised of faculty, librarians, faculty developers, and instructional support staff. Programs are based upon identified needs from the campuses and SUNY communities and in support of the strategic priorities for Academic Affairs in the SUNY strategic plan. Program areas include all aspects of teaching and learning, research, assessment, and the effective use of technology in education.

Programs are delivered in a variety of formats:

  • Face-to-Face Workshops, Events, and Mini-Conferences
  • Video Conferences
  • Synchronous Online "Webinars"
  • Asynchronous Online Classes
  • On-site at the SUNY CPD facility in East Syracuse, NY
  • At our regional campus sites or corporate partner sites

Customized and Delivered to You

Academic Programs can be customized to meet your particular training or professional development needs. Programming can be brought directly to your campus, dedicated to your Academic staff; or your campus could act as a "Regional Site."

Meeting Your Needs

To provide you with training and professional development appropriate to your needs, Academic Programs conducts periodic Needs Assessments.

  • CPD Member Campus Liaisons receive periodic Needs Assessments throughout the year.
  • At least one yearly Needs Assessment is sent to all of our listserv subscribers.
