Dean of Education - René Antrop-González

Welcome to the School of Education at SUNY New Paltz!

Here at New Paltz we work to educate future and practicing teachers who are deeply versed in their academic disciplines and committed to education as a human right.  Our faculty are committed to their roles as active agents of change, ensuring that the educational spaces in which we work, from our own college classes to the classrooms in which our graduates will teach, are sanctuaries and places of learning for peoples from her/historically marginalized groups. Our graduates leave our programs with the skills to teach their subjects deeply and insightfully and to respectfully approach the communities in which they work.
