Future Minority Male Teachers of California Project

Description of Strategy

Educators at CSU Northridge recently launched the Future Minority Male Teachers of California Project with four other large, urban CSU campuses to address California's severe shortage of male teachers of color. Each campus has committed to increasing the enrollment of this underrepresented group by at least 50% within two years. To achieve this goal, CSU recruitment specialists and their counterparts from nearby school districts are promoting careers in teaching at diversity forums, graduate school fairs, and career development events for paraprofessionals, and they are providing mentors to candidates who show an interest in teaching. In three years, CSU project leaders expect all CSU campuses to adopt these recruitment strategies.
