Empowering Educators of Color
A 2018 report from the Learning Policy Institute discusses the positive benefits that teachers of color have on both students of color and White students alike. It also addresses the fact that even though the percentage of teachers of color has grown in the last 30 years, the current teacher workforce does not reflect the growing diversity of our nation. Santa Clara University would like to contribute to the professional development and retention of teachers of color by hosting three, three-hour, collaborative sessions throughout the 2018-2019 academic year (in December, February, April).

We are looking for 15-20 educators who would like to have open, honest dialogues about real issues that today's educators of color face.

What's in it for you?
- Food will be provided
- You will earn 7.5 hours of official SCU continuing education credit (0.75 CEUs) at no cost

If interested, please click on the NEXT button below and take 5-10 minutes to complete the following application before November 1. If selected, you will be notified on November 12.
