Students in classroom

Education Scholars Alliance

The College of Education continues to place emphasis on retention, certification and graduation rates of students enrolled in teacher education programs. The primary goal of the Education Scholars Alliance (ESA) is to increase the number of underrepresented teachers in today's classrooms.

The ESA provides academic and professional support to targeted underrepresented students.

The major objective of the ESA is to ensure students successfully complete their certification programs and ultimately graduate with a bachelor's degree.

The primary mission of the Education Scholars Alliance is to help students increase their overall grade point average and successfully pass the Michigan Basic Skills Requirement.

Meeting the Basic Skills Requirement will enable them to qualify for admission to Level 2 of the teacher education programs. Once a student is accepted to Level 2 they can complete their professional education sequence and graduate with their teacher certification.

  • Leadership Development

  • Wrap Around Advising Services
  • MTTC Testing Support
  • Fellowship & Networking
