SUNY is dedicated to educating the next generation of New York State teachers and school administrators with a focus on clinical experience to produce top-quality education professionals.

The preparation of effective teachers and school leaders depends not only on Teacher Education faculty, but also on the content expertise of Arts and Sciences faculty and in-service educators and school leaders throughout the state.

The SUNY Teacher and Leader Education Network (S-TEN) is a statewide professional development network comprised of SUNY's higher education faculty and P-12 educators working together to advance continuous education renewal. This work focuses on developing a knowledge base and application strategies for the Common Core Learning Standards, clinically rich teacher preparation, New York State certification assessments, and the use of P-20 Data-Driven Decision Making to graduate the highest quality teachers in the nation.
