We hope you will support the School of Education with a generous donation. Your support will help us to continue building strong partnerships centered on quality education and engaged practitioners.
You can make a gift through the American University Giving page to the School of Education Dean's fund. We also hope you will consider writing in a specific designation for giving to two special programs:
- Larissa Gerstel Critical Literacy Collection
The Gerstel Collection and annual symposium gives students, children, parents and the community a safe, comfortable space for reading multicultural books that deal with critical literacy and issues of social justice and equity.
- Educational Equity Scholarship Program
The Educational Equity Scholarship will be awarded to a person of color who wants to pursue his or her graduate degree in teacher education, concentrating on elementary, secondary, ESOL, or special education. This person must show a commitment to improving equity in and the quality of urban schools. Special consideration will be given to DC residents and to those candidates who commit to teaching in the District after graduation.
