The College of Education at Cal State San Bernardino will host an online information session at 4 p.m. Friday, April 2, on Project Impact, an initiative that aims to significantly increase teacher diversity in grades K-12 in the Inland Empire through intentional outreach, recruitment, preparation, employment, and structured career mentoring.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, men of color make up only 5% of teachers nationally, yet they have a vital role in the future success of K-12 students. With a special focus on African American males and other underrepresented minorities, the CSUSB College of Education prepares new teachers to be highly skilled, collaborative, and inclusive educators, who are committed as restorative agents for educational equity and social justice.
Attendees at the April 2 session will learn more about:
- Benefits of being an educator serving minority populations;
- Master Your Craft Professional Development and Networking;
- Teacher Mentoring and Support;
- Cohort Learning Environment; and
- CSUSB, Accredited Credential and Degree Programs.
