Professional development opportunities are provided by the Office of Provost & Vice President for Academic Affairs and Sponsored Research & Programs. Here is a brief synopsis of current programs, with application deadlines.
The Center and Institute provide limited funding to facilitate participation in Canadian or Québec Studies conferences. Applications for scholarly travel support are accepted on a continuing basis. A complete listing of policies, procedures and application forms can be accessed at the Center/Institute. The Center also offers a limited number of summer stipends for tenured, tenured-track, and adjunct faculty with term appointments to develop new courses (or significantly revise existing or dormant courses) containing at least one-third Canadian or Québec content.

The program, activity or event should promote educational growth, development, and advancement; foster a sense of community; be open to all members of the campus community; and be held on the SUNY Plattsburgh campus.

All Departments, Centers and Programs have limited monies available to partially support faculty travel for presentations and attendance at professional conferences.
In-House Mini-Grants are periodically available to provide "seed" money to initiate a new project or continue a current, externally sponsored project. In-House Program Development Grants support activities that seek to enhance the College's visibility through special programmatic activities. The size of both grant programs is generally modest. In-House Mini-Grants and Program Development Grants must be linked to either a new or continuing project submitted to an external sponsor. The projects may focus on research, education, and/or public-service activities.
Hands-on workshops on essential technologies are offered every semester by the college's Instructional Technology unit. Each semester features workshops covering topics ranging from the basics of Microsoft Office applications through the construction of online course sites. The workshops are free to all faculty and staff. The current schedule is online at: faculty.plattsburgh.edu/it/workshops.asp
