The Bilingual Special Education University Improvement Project (BXE-UIP) at Buffalo State College helps colleges and universities meet the needs of English language learners with disabilities. BXE-UIP is a resource center that provides technical assistance to faculty at colleges and universities in New York State who wish to register programs that lead to New York State certification in the following four areas:

  • Bilingual Special Education
  • Bilingual Teacher of Students with Speech and Language Disabilities
  • Bilingual School Psychology
  • Teaching of English to Speakers of Other Languages 

Based on the results of annual surveys and feedback from stakeholders, the staff of the Resource Center have designed this interactive web site and a database to provide institutions of higher education with the information and contacts they need to develop and maintain the institutional capacity needed to meet the needs of English Language Learners with Disabilities across the state.
