Transforming education: Meeting Michigan’s growing teacher shortage

Producing highly qualified teachers to meet Michigan’s growing teacher shortage is just one of the ways Michigan’s University Research Corridor is creating and implementing solutions to Michigan’s education challenges. The university alliance also is creating the programs and support students need to succeed, according to a new URC K-12 Education Brief.

The brief focuses on how Michigan’s top three research universities that make up the URC ― Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University ― are transforming education in the state by providing research, innovative solutions for student learning and nationally recognized teacher education programs. Between 2013 and 2017, URC schools invested $250 million in 1,685 research, outreach and service projects across the state.
