Taking the Institute for Credit
The Summer Leadership Institute can either be taken as a course for graduate credit, or attendees can receive Professional Development/Attendance Credit.
Continuing Education Units, professional development credit, and attendance certificates for the Summer Leadership Institute are now given as non-credit transcripts through University College. Attendees will be given a Noncredit Course Registration Form, which they must get marked each day of the institute and hand in at the end. Then at least 2 weeks afterwards, they can request a non-credit transcript online.
The Summer Leadership Institute can be taken for graduate academic credit through Syracuse University. The course involves an additional commitment in addition to the 3-day institute - readings ahead of time, classroom instruction on August 10 and 11, and a project due the week after. Please note that you must register for BOTH the Institute itself and EDA/SPE 700 to receive credit.
If you are not already registered as a student at Syracuse University, you can do so by contacting University College at 315-443-9378. University College can also assist you with questions about tuition and course credit vouchers from your district/organization.
Once registered as student (or if you are already a student at SU), please contact Michelle Mondo at email@example.com or 315-443-2685 for a permission number for EDA/SPE 700, and register for the course on MySlice (it will be listed under Summer 2017/Summer Session II).
