A Message from the President

A Message from President Ettling

Welcome to SUNY Plattsburgh. 

This online catalog will give you a glimpse of the Plattsburgh Experience. Our student-centered approach to higher education will match your unique talents and abilities with pathways to academic, professional and personal success.

In the classroom, you’ll learn from faculty who are leaders in their field – educators who take the time to mentor as well as teach you. We are constantly developing projects and programs to increase teaching effectiveness, and experiential learning is at the heart of what we do.

Outside, you will take in what we call the PlattsLife. Whether it is checking out Cardinal athletics, attending a concert or enjoying a revitalized downtown, you will find what you’re looking for. And Montreal, the Adirondacks and Burlington, VT, are just an hour away.

I encourage you to spend time with this catalog and envision your future. “Imagine What You Will Accomplish” isn’t just a tag line; it is what our students do.


John Ettling, Ph.D.
