COME GET INVOLVED WITH UITE
The mission of the UITE is to prepare educators to serve urban students and educational communities in all their rich diversity. We conceive of educational diversity as the dynamic engagement of a range of cultural and urban traditions, including individual differences in ability. In preparing teachers and leaders to work within and across differences, we collaborate with community-based initiatives, seek out community partners, and continually work to discover fresh and innovative ways to approach both curriculum and pedagogy. Our goal is an educational process in which teachers, leaders, and teacher educators draw upon multidisciplinary research and direct urban inquiry to serve all students well. We welcome prospective teachers to this vital, sometimes daunting but always exhilarating, challenge.
La misión de la UITE es preparar educadores para atender a estudiantes urbanos y comunidades educativas en toda su rica diversidad. Concebimos la diversidad educativa como el compromiso dinámico de una variedad de tradiciones culturales y urbanas, incluidas las diferencias individuales de capacidad. Al preparar a los maestros y líderes para trabajar dentro y entre las diferencias, colaboramos con iniciativas basadas en la comunidad, buscamos socios comunitarios y trabajamos continuamente para descubrir formas nuevas e innovadoras de abordar tanto el currículo como la pedagogía. Nuestro objetivo es un proceso educativo en el que los maestros, líderes y formadores de docentes recurren a la investigación multidisciplinaria y la investigación urbana directa para servir bien a todos los estudiantes. Damos la bienvenida a los futuros maestros a este desafío vital, a veces desalentador, pero siempre estimulante.
