Teachers and administrators in MSUNER partner districts are provided an opportunity to immerse themselves in scholarly topics and issues in small, liberal arts seminars offered by university faculty. Seminars focus on three main areas: Great Lives and Literatures; Living, Learning, and the Arts; and Science Matters.
The Teachers as Scholars program at Montclair State University began with a grant from the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation. This is one of just 29 Teachers as Scholars programs throughout the country and the third such program in New Jersey. Teachers as Scholars furthers school-university collaboration by providing public school educators with intellectually stimulating seminars offered by university faculty in the arts and sciences. Seminars will be offered at Montclair State in each fall and spring semester.
