Urban Teaching Cohort

EHS has worked to conceptualize and support the earliest iterations of an urban teacher cohort in Tom Dutton's Over the Rhine Residency Program and in the current work being conducted by Tammy Schwartz to build a systematic connection for students interested in urban teaching into Miami's programs in teacher education and licensure. The school districts immediately partnering on the urban cohort project are Cincinnati, Hamilton and Middletown.

The Urban Teaching Cohort (UTC) is a community-based approach to teacher education. Miami faculty and UTC students collaborate with high-needs schools and community-based organizations to prepare teachers who are grounded in the life of the community.
