CIS is excited to announce a partnership with State University of New York (SUNY) College at Plattsburgh. SUNY Plattsburgh’s nationally accredited education program has been running for 120 years, testament to their ability to innovate; the college is continually updating and redesigning their program to reflect the latest research and emerging trends.
The aim of this partnership is to increase international opportunities for SUNY Plattsburgh Education Majors by connecting them with CIS Schools through CIS Career & Recruitment Services. These opportunities may take the form of internships or teaching placements. The precise details are under discussion but the enthusiasm from SUNY Plattsburgh students is already apparent. Pauline O’Brien, Director of CIS Career & Recruitment Services, visited the college campus in March to speak to teacher candidates — from freshmen to graduate students nearing their masters in student teaching, about the possibilities of teaching overseas; Jackie Vogl, Associate Vice President for Global Education said “Our freshmen were extremely excited. In fact, three came up to after her presentation to introduce themselves and tell her to count them in”.
CIS and SUNY Plattsburgh are both excited about the possibilities this developing partnership affords. Watch this space.
