If you can dream it, you can do it. Let us show you the way.
Message from the Chancellor
To ensure the best future for our state and for all Texans, we must invest in the highest quality education for all students, and this begins with preparing, nurturing and supporting great teachers. At the University of Texas System, our institutions are keenly aware of the importance of preparing outstanding teachers to help students develop and achieve their potential. We want to recruit promising future teachers and support them as they engage in some of the most impactful work imaginable. An investment in the quality of teaching pays dividends many, many times over.
James B. Milliken, Chancellor
ElevateTXed is committed to improving education throughout the P20 pipeline in Texas. Across the state and the nation, there are gaps in educational opportunity, achievement and attainment by diverse learners. Recruitment and retention of new teachers is at a crisis level and the entire profession is undervalued. It is this context that compels us to dramatically re-imagine approaches to teacher preparation for a world rife with ambiguity, complexity and challenges, some known and some not, now and in the future. This is more than a need; it is an imperative.
Key drivers for fulfilling this commitment and for building and sustaining the excellence of UT’s educator preparation programs are:
Build strong university/school partnerships which are essential to supporting the state’s lowest performing schools and to enhancing expertise in “school transformation” within UT Colleges of Education.
