Multicultural Initiatives in Teaching

The Multicultural Initiatives in Teaching (MIT) Program was formerly known as the Minorities in Teaching Program. The MIT Program was initiated in 1988 as a school/university partnership between the University of Northern Iowa and five Iowa school districts with large, ethnically diverse student populations. These districts included Davenport, Waterloo, Cedar Rapids, Sioux City, and Des Moines.

The major goal of the program is to increase the number of ethnically diverse educators teaching in Iowa schools.
