WHO

Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) graduate more minority teachers than any other source.  For the past three years, the Thurgood Marshall College Fund (TMCF) has designed the Teacher Quality and Retention Program (TQRP) to help these teachers enhance the learning experience of students.

In 2011, TMCF presented four TQRP’s divided into one-week sessions.  The one-week summer institutes designed to give education majors experience in the application of educational theories and practices.  The training equipped future teachers with the skills they needed to successfully enter high-need schools in urban and rural communities.  Select STEM majors took part in a two-week fellowship designed to expose those considering a career in education to the latest theories and practices associated with exemplary science and mathematics instruction. Program Fellows attended one of the four institutes that are usually held around the country.  The institutes are held at one of TMCF’s member-schools.
