Bush Foundation commits $4.5M for TERI

The Bush Foundation has committed up to $4.5 million to support the University of Minnesota as it restructures teacher preparation programs in the College of Education and Human Development. The Bush Foundation today announced a total of seven partnerships, which include 14 higher-education institutions, focused on transforming teacher-preparation programs in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Through ongoing collaboration with K-12 schools, the college's Teacher Education Redesign Initiative (TERI) will have a long-lasting, positive impact on the children of Minnesota, new teachers and programs within the college. Improved partnerships with K-12 districts are designed to benefit the university, district and prospective teachers.

Teachers prepared through TERI will strongly focus on student learning and have the ability to adapt to the needs of all learners. The university will diversify its teaching candidate pool and provide pathways into its teacher preparation programs for both exceptionally qualified undergraduate students and for career changers.

The first group of prospective teachers will enter the redesigned program during summer 2011.
