Teach for America Partnership

The partnership between Marquette's College of Education and Teach for America began in 2009. Together, we aim to enlist our nation's most promising future leaders in the effort to build the movement to eliminate educational inequity.

We begin by preparing an expanding corps of exceptional educational leaders through course work toward elementary and secondary post-baccalaureate Wisconsin teacher licensure. Successful completion of the two-year TFA program may also culminate with a master of education degree.

TFA participants assigned to teach in the Milwaukee area are eligible to apply to the MU/TFA partnership program. For more information, click here.
