CEHD Dean’s Diversity in Education Scholarship

By contributing toward the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) Dean’s Diversity in Education Scholarship, you are helping a student from an underrepresented background in the field of education pursue a degree in elementary teacher education or early childhood education. The cost of a college education can be daunting for students from underrepresented backgrounds, especially first-generation college students or those who reside in a disadvantaged or low-income community. These scholarships ensure access to our high-quality teacher education programs, while easing the financial burden of pursuing a college education.

Help Sustain the Teachers of Tomorrow Program

The Teachers of Tomorrow Program, in the College of Education & Human Development, strives to diversify and prepare the next generation of educators. The program offers rising high school juniors and seniors from underrepresented backgrounds an introduction to the field of education. The two-week, on-campus program in June helps to prepare these students interested in becoming teachers by providing them with the skills necessary to pursue a degree in education. Participants are guided through the college application process, engage with their peers and receive leadership development training.

New Directions Early Head Start: Bundle Up Baby

New Directions Early Head Start is a diverse group of non-profit community agencies that provide direct services to empower and support low-income pregnant women, infants, toddlers and their families in the New Castle and Kent Counties. Please join us this year in bringing smiles to the faces of over 200 children enrolled in our program by participating in our annual Coat Drive! We are collecting cold weather gear, such as coats, hats, mittens, car seat covers and blankets, to keep the young ones enrolled in our program warm this winter.
