Delivers on State of the State Commitment to Select Top Tier Candidates at SUNY Colleges and Universities by Raising Academic Requirements for Entrance into Teaching Programs
Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced that the State University of New York (SUNY) Board of Trustees has adopted a measure submitted by the SUNY Chancellor to require new admission requirements for incoming teachers at SUNY colleges and universities. This action by the Board delivers on the Governor’s 2013 State of the State commitment to continue to address teacher quality by raising the bar on recruitment standards.
“The quality of New York’s higher education system depends on having the best and brightest teachers in our classrooms teaching our students,” Governor Cuomo said. “These new admission requirements will help ensure that we are recruiting from exceptional candidates to educate our state’s students. I applaud this action by SUNY to continue striving for higher standards and better results.”
