•  Twin Cities Teacher Collaborative (TC2) 

    The unique Twin Cities Teacher Collaborative (TC2) is part of a significant and progressive effort initiated in 2009 by the Bush Foundation to establish a new paradigm for teaching and learning in Minnesota – to improve teacher effectiveness as a means to reduce educational disparities and increase the number of learners who attend post-secondary school.

    Partnership
    TC2 is a partnership of six private institutions of higher education in the Twin Cities metropolitan area: Augsburg College, Bethel University, Concordia University Saint Paul, Hamline University, St. Catherine University, and the University of St. Thomas. These institutions share a long and rich history and collectively prepare nearly 20% of all new teachers licensed in Minnesota.

    Programs
    TC2 teacher preparation initiatives include a strategic recruitment process, a continuum of mentoring and induction, a residency-like preparation model, and embedded assessments. Each area has a work team of P-12 teachers and representatives from each of the TC2 partner organizations.
