NEW PALTZ – The State University of New York at New Paltz will hold The Teaching, Learning and Leadership luncheon to honor the Educational Administration interns who are matriculated in the Certificate of Advanced Study (CAS) programs in School Building Leadership, School District Leadership and School District Business Leadership. The luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 9, at 11:30 a.m. in the Student Union Building Multipurpose room.

SUNY Chancellor Nancy L. Zimpher will deliver the keynote address about the SUNY Teacher Education Network. New Paltz President Donald P. Christian, Dean of the College’s School of Education Michael Rosenberg, and Associate Dean of the School of Education Karen Bell are also expected to speak during the luncheon. Bell will present the internship certificates and awards.

The program’s outstanding graduate is Rebecca Pence (’13) and the outstanding intern is Daniel Cowan (’13).

The Educational Administration advanced degree programs prepare administrators and school leaders to meet the challenges of a diverse and demanding educational environment. SUNY New Paltz offers a Master’s degree with a concentration in Educational Leadership and four CAS programs. An accelerated 15-month CAS program will be offered beginning this summer in School Building Leadership and School District Leadership.

Programs such as Educational Administration offered by SUNY New Paltz support one of SUNY’s Six Big Ideas, the Seamless Education Pipeline, providing opportunities for advanced education and continued career success.

“We have forged unprecedented levels of collaboration and partnership with the state’s school districts, communities, and businesses,” said SUNY Chancellor Nancy Zimpher. Taken together, the sum of SUNY’s efforts ensure not only that all New York State students have access to the quality public higher education our campuses provide, but also that they have the supports and tools they need to complete their education and translate their degrees into successful careers.”
