A SPECIAL NOTICE
The Student Building Leader (SBL) and Student District Leader (SDL) programs offered by the Marxe School of Public and International Affairs are in the process of being discontinued. The New York State Department of Education requires all educational leadership programs to be accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). At this time, CAEP only accredits teacher education programs that offer additional SBL/SDL components. CAEP is not prepared to accredit institutions, such as Baruch College, that offer SBL/SDL programs exclusively without teacher education.
The Marxe School will certify students until the end of the Spring 2018 semester. After the official end of the Spring 2018 semester, no SBL or SDL recommendations will be issued by the College. No exceptions or waivers will be permitted. The point of contact for questions is the Marxe Educational Leadership Advisor Jillian Ryan (Jillian.Ryan@baruch.cuny.edu; 646-660-6834).
Be assured if you have already completed certification for your SBL or SDL and/or obtained an MSEd through Baruch, this does not affect you; your certification and degree remain valid.
