Teacher Education

SUNY Teacher Education is an important component of SUNY’s Strategic Plan, The Power of SUNY.  As a major link between higher education and P-12 schools, SUNY Teacher education is dedicated to preparing effective teachers for urban, suburban and rural classrooms as well as serving schools in their communities.  Teacher Education is at the core of the State University of New York’s historical mission.  It began as the central function of the eleven SUNY campuses founded as Normal Schools specifically to prepare teachers.  SUNY has enjoyed an excellent reputation for its graduates who become teachers.  Academic Affairs provides coordination and oversight for Teacher Education program development, transfer, and other major system-wide teaching initiatives.
