UTRGV joins three other minority-serving institutions in BranchEd initiative to help train teachers

The UTRGV College of Education and P-16 Integration is one of four minority-serving institutions selected by the Branch Alliance for Educator Diversity (BranchEd) to join its national Teacher Preparation Transformation Center, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Dr. Alma Rodriguez, interim dean of the UTRGV College of Education and P-16 Integration, and Dr. Sandra Musanti, associate professor in the Bilingual and Literacy Studies Department, worked on the grant proposal and will co-lead grant implementation.

They will work collaboratively with BranchEd, which will provide training, technical assistance and funding to UTRGV, to advance outcomes and amplify contributions as the second-largest Hispanic Serving Institution in preparing effective diverse teachers.
