Office for Place-Based Education Needs You!
Place-Based Education is an innovative educational approach that encourages students to examine issues in particular neighborhoods by observing from the lens of members of the neighborhoods. Students in our NEXT program become active citizens and scholars by designing hands-on projects to improve their communities. This powerful instructional approach resonates with our students and provides them with valuable experiences on their journey of becoming teachers.
Donations to this fund support Place-Based Education students and those in our NEXT Scholars program. The NEXT Scholars program supports our enrollment, retention, graduation, and job success of students from traditionally marginalized communities as teachers.
