Welcome to the Innovation Center 4 Educator Preparation


Who We Serve

The Innovation Center 4 Educator Preparation is a technical assistance center serving Alternative Certification Programs who wish to engage in a continuous improvement process to strategically make changes to their programs.


Our Mission

The Innovation Center 4 Educator Preparation provides technical assistance to alternative certification programs to increase program quality through a continuous improvement process. Our goal is to maximize each program’s effectiveness through sustainable partnerships with school districts so that new teachers receive the necessary support to develop into successful educators. All elements of the work are rooted in equity and diversity.


Our Commitment to Equity

The Innovation Center 4 Educator Preparation works with Alternative Certification Programs and their partner districts to learn about and construct a deep understanding of equity, diversity and inclusion in education. We strive to equip these partners with the tools necessary to dismantle systemic inequities for all students, but particularly those students that experience poverty and students of color.
