The Center for Teacher Preparation and Partnerships (CTPP) is a service unit within the College of Education. The Center’s mission is to provide excellent, diverse and equitable urban internship opportunities for teacher candidates within their partnership school districts: Jersey City, Union City, Bayonne, West New York, Newark, North Arlington, Secaucus, Kearny and Harrison. To sustain their mission, the CTPP collaborates with many stakeholders within the learning community: the Colleges of Education, Professional Studies, and Arts and Sciences faculty; district teachers, administrators, community colleges, university supervisors and teacher candidates.The Center is committed to creating a Professional Development School (PDS) network within each partnership district to ensure the quality of the teacher candidate’s clinical experience within a PDS. This commitment and collaboration on the part of the College of Education, CTPP and partnership districts will greatly contribute to their collective efforts in preparing highly qualified teachers as our educators of tomorrow. Additionally, the CTPP is constantly seeking outside funding sources to implement new initiatives and strategies to provide additional learning opportunities for students in the public schools and those in the College of Education.
