On October 26, 2023, the SUNY Office of Student Success, lead by Senior Vice Chancellor Donna Linderman, announced the SUNY Strategic Academic Innovative Leadership Institute (SAIL) would merge into the SUNY Center for Professional Development (CPD) allowing SAIL to leverage SUNY CPD’s program and support model and infrastructure.The merger enables both CPD and SAIL to expand their networks and create a broader range of professional development and training programs along with services to campuses. It is expected that SUNY SAIL signature programs will continue to be offered through SUNY CPD.

Both organizations share a mission to empower individuals and organizations through workplace learning and development. Merging CPD and SAIL as a distinguished Leadership Institute increases operational efficiencies and creates additional areas for collaboration and growth.

Please join me in welcoming SUNY SAIL Director, Carolyn Mattiske to our team at SUNY Center for Professional Development.

Thank you for your continued support of CPD and SAIL.  We are looking forward to the new opportunities this merger presents in 2024.
