Senior Fellow

After earning his PhD at Stanford in '82, George Otte spent over 4 decades in higher education, most of that at the City University of New York. In 2001 he was named Director of Instructional Technology for CUNY; the title changed to University Director of Academic Technology in 2008, the same year he became chief academic officer of the CUNY School of Professional Studies, the home of the University's first online degrees. He oversaw the development of so many (by 2022 more than two dozen) that he gave up his position with CUNY Central (as AT director) in 2018. In 2022, he stepped down as the CAO of CUNY SPS.
