Community Partners

Sapsik’ʷałá (Teacher) Education Project

The UO College of Education in consortium with the nine federally recognized tribes of the State of Oregon initiated the Sapsik’ʷałá (Teacher) Project in 2002.

Tribes as Partners
An advisory council of representatives from the tribal consortia, the local community, and the university will oversee grant activities. The recruitment, support, pre-service training, and in-service mentorship of American Indian teachers will be developed together with the oversight of the council.

Program components include the following partnership features

  • This is a cohort-within-a-cohort model.
  • Induction year (first year teaching) services.
