NYIT Names Dr. Satasha Green New Dean of School of Education

Old Westbury, N.Y. (August 1, 2012)New York Institute of Technology has named Satasha L. Green, Ph.D., as dean of its School of Education.

Green, who previously served as associate dean of the University of Alaska Anchorage, has conducted research on multicultural issues, diverse learning styles, and special education. 

“One of my goals is to be able to highlight some of the things the faculty is doing – strategically promoting faculty research and their involvement in the community,” said Green, who will begin her NYIT tenure on August 15. “Another is making the School of Education a “go-to” place and resource for education issues."   

“Satasha Green’s combination of leadership experience and expertise brings a valuable advantage to the school’s ongoing efforts to support diversity, incorporate technology, and generate relevant research,” said NYIT President Edward Guiliano. “Her experience in establishing interdisciplinary courses and programs in the University of Alaska’s College of Education will be very helpful in reshaping and revitalizing our programs. Her vast expertise in special education will provide NYIT with an opportunity to expand our offerings in this vital area.”

Green holds degrees from Texas A&M University and the University of Texas at Austin. She previously served as an assistant professor at Buffalo State College (SUNY) and adjunct professor at Southwestern University in Texas. 

Green’s appointment comes several  months after the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) re-accredited the school’s teacher training programs. 

“Professional accreditation is one way to ensure the public that schools of education are graduating well-qualified teachers ready for today’s classrooms,” said Michael Uttendorfer, former dean of NYIT’s School of Education. “We have proven our commitment to producing quality teachers for our nation’s children by achieving re-accreditation this year. Our faculty worked tirelessly to achieve this recognition and is applauded for this major accomplishment.”

Uttendorfer will return to the classroom to teach two courses, Training Practitioner Skills, Strategies, Techniques and Math, Science and Technology. He will also serve as an assistant provost for the next academic year.
