The Center for Teaching Excellence

Welcome to SUNY Plattsburgh Center for Teaching Excellence!


The mission of the CTE is to support faculty and staff in the creation of a culture of excellence in teaching. Our ultimate goal is to contribute to the success of our students as intellectual and moral citizens of the local and global community.

All feedback from CTE services is intended to be formative. The primary intention of feedback is to help you achieve your goals of excellence in teaching, which requires:

  • Institutional and departmental support
  • A culture of intrinsic motivation
  • Faculty commitment to development over time beyond tenure and promotion
  • Reflection on how positive teaching experiences enrich academic life for both students and faculty

We will support success in these requirements by offering services that meet your needs in your discipline (individual and departmental consultations, workshops, faculty learning communities) and by providing resources both online and in person.


At the CTE confidentiality is absolutely fundamental to the collaborative and supportive work that we do, and we take it very seriously. See here for the full confidentiality policy.
