School of Education General Fund

Purpose: To advance the mission of the School of Education in supporting students, advancing programs (involving the expansion and support of the curriculum and the School’s teaching mission), and impact/outreach (activities that directly benefit the schools and communities the School of Education serves and that communicates the mission of the School of Education).

Roadrunner Diversity Scholars Program (RDSP) Fund

The Roadrunner Diversity Scholars Program (RDSP) is an academic enrichment program designed to support the recruitment and retention of underrepresented, Pell-eligible, and first-generation undergraduate students in MSU Denver’s School of Education. The program will support student scholars in their pursuit of academic and professional goals. The program offers connection and support through organized social and cultural activities, networking, faculty mentorship, and intentional and consistent advising for academic and professional development.

Office of Education Solutions Program Fund

This fund supports the innovative work of the Office of Education Solutions (OES). OES works with schools and educational agencies in addressing and seeking solutions in teaching, curriculum, equity, and other persistent problems in preK-12 educational settings in the community, nation, and world.

Trauma-Informed Pedagogy & Training Fund

Metropolitan State University Denver School of Education (MSU Denver), Resilient Futures, and the National Mental Health Innovation Center (NMHIC) are working together to build the capacity of teacher candidates to develop resiliency and understand and address trauma triggers in school environments with pre-school and school-aged children; and secondary trauma in themselves and their coworkers. New teachers will enter the workforce better prepared to address their own needs and the needs of the children and families they serve, instead of gaining this foundational knowledge “on the fly”, or after they have been in the field for many years.

School of Education Retention Fund

The School of Education (SOE) Retention Fund will create an assistance award program for students experiencing unforeseeable financial hardships. This program is to be available to students majoring in any of the SOE teacher preparation programs and funds will be disbursed to students in hardship situations of last resort when other financial avenues have been explored.
