District and School Partnerships

Partnerships at the School of Education

The University of St. Thomas School of Education can work with you to serve a full cohort of 20-25 students or identify opportunities for your staff to join current cohorts and collaborate with other partners.

Through our current partnerships, the School of Education has developed and deepened our commitment to collaborating with districts and schools to invest in growing their human capital. Our partnerships have leveraged Grow Your Own (GYO) and other state and federal funding to support students as they seek licensure. These pathways are created with the mindset of serving students first. Our partnerships provide pathways to prepare educators who will join the profession ready to meet the needs of a diverse student population.

Work & Learn

The Work & Learn program aims to recruit, prepare, retain and support highly qualified paraprofessionals and effective teachers on a Tier 1 or 2 license from underrepresented backgrounds who reflect our diverse student populations in Twin Cities metro school districts. It provides an affordable, accessible, and accelerated program to earn a Minnesota teaching license and master's degree in 2.5 years.

Teacher Residencies

Here at the University of St. Thomas, we've seen firsthand the difference teachers of color can make in the classroom when armed with culturally sustaining pedagogy and the preparation to stay in the profession for the long haul. That's why we've partnered with school districts and organizations to provide affordable and flexible pathways for prospective teachers of color to choose a career that will make a difference in the lives of students, families and communities across Minnesota.
