SUNY Urban Teacher Education Center (SUTEC)

The Office of Field Experiences works closely with the SUNY Urban Teacher Education Center (SUTEC), under the direction of the New York City Department of Education. SUTEC's primary mission is to assist the 17 SUNY campuses that offer teacher education programs in the placement of student teacher candidates in New York City public schools. These experiences prepare candidates for teacher certification to become competent and confident education professionals in urban, multicultural environments. SUTEC also facilitates the recruitment of SUNY teacher education graduates for New York City schools and provides an academic center for research and scholarship in urban education.
