Culturally, linguistically, and economically diverse youth attend city, suburban, and rural schools. This creates new and interesting opportunities for teachers in these environments. Whether you are new to the profession or a veteran teacher, you encounter students experiencing the challenges of poverty, diversity of language and culture, violence, and varied family systems.
The Center for Excellence in Urban Teaching (CEUT), established in 1996, is Minnesota’s pioneer organization for training and supporting teachers in applying proven culturally relevant pedagogical practices in urban and urban-like schools to promote increased educational success for all youth in Minnesota. An integral part of Hamline University’s School of Education, the Center is led by a statewide advisory board of diverse educators.
