Continuing its tradition and commitment to educating Long Island professionals and specially teachers, Dowling College is emerging as a national leader in educating teachers with diverse backgrounds, placing over fifty diverse teachers nationally.
The International and Diversity Institute is one of few in the nation dedicated exclusively to attracting diverse students from unique circumstances to become teachers.
This initiative addresses the systemic and growing problem of providing skilled, technologically educated teachers to meet the national shortfall of teachers in all areas of education especially among economically disadvantaged communities and their public schools.
Among the goals of this initiative is to increase the current rate of diverse graduates receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Education; reduce the dropout rate of diverse students; and to educate, train and recruit more diverse males and females into teaching at all grade levels of the public and private school systems.
Director: Dr. Elsa-Sofia Morote
