Teacher Education Advocacy Center
|The Teacher Education Advocacy Center (TEAC) exists to enhance the quality of the Teacher Education Program at Montclair State University, particularly by encouraging and supporting the recruitment and preparation of students from minority groups (e.g. linguistic; cultural; racial and/or ethnic) into teaching. Founded in 1998, TEAC promotes the development and implementation of culturally responsive educational programs and academic assistance activities for pre-collegiate, undergraduate and graduate students. It is also active in research pertaining to education and diversity.
TEAC has special initiatives that respond to the changing demographics of New Jersey as it relates to the need to recruit a well-prepared teaching force. Full-time advisors/counselors are on hand to assess student needs and provide personalized support, academic guidance, college life adjustment, counseling, mentoring, career networking and financial aid assistance. TEAC interacts with several offices on campus to provide students with appropriate interventions designed specifically for them.
