From College to the
Independent School Classroom

The Goals

Broaden the pipeline of teachers of color at every level.


Create long term connections between independent schools and colleges/universities.


Create a purpose for administrators of color to gather together and calibrate best practices in hiring.


Strengthen the network between early career teachers of color and administrators of color to ensure the sustainability of the work.

Revive Face-to-Face Campus Recruitment: The first step in the process of diversifying a faculty is to know how and where to seek teaching candidates of color. Before independent school teacher agencies existed, representatives from independent schools went to colleges to recruit firsthand. While agencies may succeed in recruiting able candidates generally, the recruitment of teachers of color will require a more concerted and more personal effort.
