About Project Impact
Project Impact is a community outreach program of the College of Education at California State University in San Bernardino. This project is aimed at increasing the teacher pipeline in California, while at the same time working to help close academic achievement gaps in the K-12 settings through intentional recruitment, training, and deployment of minority male teachers (African American and Hispanic males) into the California classrooms.
CSUSB COE intends to increase the number of African American and Hispanic male teachers in the Inland Empire at the K-12 levels, with the goal of narrowing the achievement gap between African American and Hispanic students and their white or Asian counterparts, as well as increasing the number of African American and Hispanic students who go into the STEM disciplines.
