Governor greets new Woodrow Wilson fellows

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence and scores of up-and-coming Indiana educators visited campus recently for the introduction of this year’s new classes entering the Woodrow Wilson Indiana Teaching Fellowship and the Woodrow Wilson MBA Fellowship in Education Leadership programs.

Through a partnership with the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation supported by Lilly Endowment, UIndy’s School of Education, School of Business and Shaheen College of Arts & Sciences have been instrumental in developing the programs from local pilots into national models for the preparation of STEM teachers and innovative school administrators.

The education MBA program, which allows Indiana school districts to develop new leaders from within their ranks, debuted last year at UIndy and soon will expand to Indiana University and Indiana State University. The teaching fellowship program, which prepares career-changers and recent graduates to serve as STEM teachers in high-need schools, has been operating for six years at UIndy and also is offered at Ball State University, IUPUI, Purdue University and Valparaiso University, as well as colleges in four other states.
