The SUNY Buffalo State PDS is an active, award-winning Consortium. This success is largely due to the collaboration of our professional learning community. The BS PDS holds an annual retreat, at which PDS partners, faculty, and students present their current year’s research projects for review and discussion. Much of the research that comes out of these “mini-grant” projects is further presented at state and national level conferences and is published in professional journals.
The PDS has received local, state and national awards for excellence. The 2011 Award for Exemplary Professional Development School Achievement was awarded to the Buffalo State Professional Development School (PDS) Consortium by the National Association for Professional Development Schools (NAPDS).

In addition the Buffalo State Professional Development Schools Consortium received the 2013 Spirit of Partnership Award from the University of South Carolina at the National Conference.
