Associate Director for Certification
Professional Education Program
Dr. Marvin Glockner is Associate Dean of the School of Professional Development. In addition, he holds the titles of Associate Director of the Professional Education Program and University Teacher Certification Officer. Dr. Glockner is widely respected nationally for his work in the area of articulation between two and four-year institutions. In addition, he has done research on assimilation of immigrant groups in the United States. Dr. Glockner holds masters degrees in History and Curriculum & Instruction in addition to his Ph.D. in Higher Education. He is Past-Chair, Mid-Atlantic Region, University Continuing Education Association and has sat on the national board for several years. He has held similar titles in both ACHE and NAASS. Several of his programs have been recognized as outstanding by NAASS.
Currently, Dr. Glockner is heavily involved in community outreach programs and sits on policy boards of several teacher centers where his development skills have been important in the evolvement of focused programs for in-service teachers. Stony Brook outreach programs stretch from New York City in the West to the Hamptons at the Eastern end of Long Island. However, now that several of his programs are being delivered electronically onIine, Stony Brook is reaching out to the State, region and nationally.
Dr. Glockner has been tapped for several presidential and provostial task forces as well as committees involved with community-based initiatives and foci on working with populations with special needs. As a result of his energies in program development, Stony Brook has been effective in gaining quick approval for MAT programs in Biology, Mathematics and Spanish as well as combined Bachelors/Masters degrees in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science, English, French, Italian, Mathematics, Physics, Social Studies and Spanish. He has helped write several proposals for recently approved Post-Master's Advanced Graduate Certificates including SBL, SDL, SDBL and EDL licensing programs.
Dr. Glockner has also had Advanced Graduate Certificate Programs in Coaching, Human Resource Management, School Building Leadership and School District Leadership approved for online delivery. These are in addition to approval of two major graduate master's degrees, the Master of Arts in Liberal Studies and the Master of Professional Studies in an electronic format.
The two educational leadership programs are the largest in the State. The Educational Leadership Program leading to institutional recommendation for both building and district level licenses is the first of its kind approved by NYSED in both face-to-face and online delivery formats. Two of SPD's programs which account for over half of the University's West Campus graduate population (MA/LS and AGCs in Educational Leadership) are among the three largest in the University. This is no small achievement considering that Dr. Glockner has been associated with Stony Brook University for only fourteen years.
