Black & Hispanic/Latino Male Teachers Initiative Networked Improvement Community

Description of Strategy

In 2014, the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) created The Black & Hispanic/Latino Male Teachers Initiative Networked Improvement Community to help teacher education institutions increase the number of Black and Hispanic/Latino men earning teaching credentials. AACTE selected CSU Fullerton and 9 other institutions across the country to participate in this work. At CSU Fullerton, recruiters are reaching out to students in high schools; providing a mentorship program with undergraduate males of color and local veteran educators; offering financial aid options; and preparing candidates for the state tests needed to enter their credential programs.
