I am so pleased to welcome you to the SUNY Center for Professional Development (SUNY CPD) website. The CPD is a vital resource for the entire SUNY community, providing high quality professional development for faculty, instructional support staff, technical staff, campus leadership and administration. The CPD programs are grounded in research and best practices and designed to foster new skill development, growth, and innovation.
I encourage you to explore current offerings, plan to try a course or two, and to reach out if you, your office/department, or institution have specific training needs.
Commitment to professional development for personal and professional growth, to re-energize our pedagogy and our ability to capture our students’ attention and imagination, have long been hallmarks of higher education. In fact, a more real-time focus on professional development proved to be essential for so many of us this year as we worked to meet the demands of the pandemic. The SUNY CPD was there for this critical transition and stands ready to help.
