Creating, Developing, and Sustaining Strong Community-University Partnerships
October 26, 2017 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Please join Dr. Dorinda Carter Andrews, Northeastern faculty and students, and Boston-area educators and education stakeholders for a rich conversation about examples of cutting edge collaborations between teacher education programs, local school districts and community stakeholders that together prepare all teachers to effectively work with a racially diverse student body. The Community Conversation led by Dr. Carter Andrews commences the Northeastern University Teacher Education program's work to build networks and partnerships that can inform and shape changes to the program. Dr. Carter Andrews is a leading voice in national conversations about the urgency of diversifying the U.S. teaching force and better preparing all teachers to effectively work with our culturally diverse K12 students. She is Assistant Dean of Equity Outreach Initiatives for the College of Education and Associate Professors of Race, Culture and Equity in the Department of Teacher Education at Michigan State University. Her research is broadly focused on race and equity in education, urban teacher preparation and identity development, and critical race praxis with educators.
