Future Teacher Institute program records, 1993-1998.

  • UWRF Series 185
  • collection
  • 1993-1998

This collection documents the Future Teacher Institute program at the University of Wisconsin River Falls. The program at UWRF began as part of a larger program, the Consortium of Minorities in Teaching Careers. The consortium was comprised of nine other universities in the early nineties to increase the recruitment of ethnic minorities into the teaching profession. The program model was developed by Judson Taylor, from California State University at Domingues Hills. Dr. Taylor became the Vice Chancellor at UWRF. The program was led by José Vega, Assistant Dean. The program at UWRF sought to improve the recruitment of Native Americans into the teaching profession. Recruiters from schools in Minnesota and Wisconsin were sought to work with and recruit students that were thought to have potential and interest in the teaching profession. The Future Teacher Institute at UWRF was a two-week program where students who stayed on campus learned instructional methods the first week and the second week employed those methods by teaching elementary students that applied for the Academic Enrichment Program.

This collection is arranged into sub-series containing records of their respective programs. Consortium for Minorities in Teaching Careers, Future Teacher Institute, Academic Enrichment Program, and some records from the College of Education Teacher Education Department. This collection also contains photographs. Digital records were added as a later addition and are similarly arranged by program.
