We have started our successful co-heart model. For a limited time, we are accepting applications for potential teaching candidates to this co-heart.
Tipiziwin Tolman, of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, is just one individual who is part of a new WSU initiative to increase Native teachers and education administrators.
The students in our project are amazing! They’re a coheart, already doing great work at WSU, and each making a difference in their respective Tribal communities.
Our faculty, who champion Indigenous teaching and learning, are committed to the coheart members becoming state-certified teachers in their Tribal communities.
Applicants may be eligible for financial aid. Students may still complete the alternative route program even if they do not receive these funds.
As part of this project, we provide teaching and learning opportunities along with professional development grounded in Indigenous Knowledge Systems.
We work with several groups, including Tribes, to ensure this program is successful. One is the Clearinghouse on Native Teaching and Learning.
