Grant to Reach Future Teachers

The College of Education recently received word that for a third year, they have been awarded a grant for the IMPACTS '10 project through the Oklahoma Regents Minority Teacher Recruitment Center (MTRC) Grant Program. This program has been an outreach program to attract students from minority or low-income schools to consider teaching as a career choice. Each year's grant activities have resulted in approximately 65 students from the Tulsa area visiting the ORU campus for a one-day conference.
