The Teachers Now campaign, which launched in 2018 and is entirely donor-driven, has three key components: construction of a School of Education building, creation of new academic programs in high need teaching areas, and a robust scholarship program that will provide financial support for individuals who choose to pursue a career in K-12 education.
