That was what prompted The Sage Colleges to develop two new doctoral programs unlike any other in the area, said program directors Joan Dacher and Ann Myers.
 
Charles Dedrick whom is now the District Superintendent of Cohoes Central School said, "I've always been interested in pursuing a doctoral program. One of the things I like about Sage's program is that the group of students I start with I'll finish with. We'll stay together through the course of study. That's similar to Teachers College at Columbia University. And it's local," he said.
