There is an unprecedented shortage of special education teachers. To combat this, we are supporting the recruitment, retention, and development of doctoral scholars with the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and critical consciousness to be effective, inclusive, and culturally and linguistically sustaining special education leaders.
Project IMMERSE (Inclusive, Multicultural, Multilingual, Effective, and Responsive Special Education) is a partnership between the Syracuse University School of Education, University of New Mexico, and Rowan University. Scholars join a diverse cohort of doctoral students and emerging leaders with commitment to, and expertise in, improving outcomes for diverse students with disabilities and their families.
Applicants should have a master’s degree in special education or related field, and K-12 teaching or disability-related experience.
