Empire State College in Staten Island
By Pola Rosen, Ed.D.

 

The Educational Leadership Forum directed by Dr. Donald Singer, is an integral part of Empire State College. The purpose is to provide a forum to the labor and education community to review, discuss and improve education of the community from pre-kindergarten through college and beyond. The Forumís initiative began in Staten Island and will soon expand to the tristate area. The college setting serves as a meeting place and resource to educational leaders.

On a recent visit to the college, housed in
a modern building on Seaview Avenue not
far from the Verrazzano Bridge, Saturday classes were buzzing with students accruing credits beyond their bachelors and masters degrees
as part of the education program. Many were teachers, paraprofessionals, police and fire
officers.

Empire State College is open to all undergraduate and graduate students, both matriculated and non-matriculated. The flexibility of the program and its Saturday hours is ideal for professionals and parents. Last monthís forum dealt with the role of parents in education. The May 30th forum will deal with unions in education. For further information: 718-667-7524 or contact Michael Murphy, Unit Coordinator at 718-667-4554. #
