A sustained tradition of extended learning for the public service!
Now one of the largest university-based continuing professional education programs in the nation, the Professional Development Program began through a small contract with the former New York State Department of Social Services in 1975. From that modest beginning, PDP grew to establish an international reputation for delivering quality learning products on time and on budget—a track record that has resulted in multi-million dollar funding.
