Hamline University announced that its Graduate School of Education's Center for Excellence in Urban Teaching has been awarded $50,000 by the Otto Bremer Foundation.

This general operating grant will be used to help strengthen the center's core programs and organizational effectiveness, to increase outreach to metro area schools, to increase enrollment in the center's graduate-level certification for urban teachers program, and to support the development of a three-year plan of operations.

"We are grateful for the support of the Otto Bremer Foundation and for the confidence it has placed in us," said Frank Hernandez, director of the Center for Excellence in Urban Teaching. "With this grant we will expand our capacity to both reach out to the community and to teach educators effective strategies to help urban learners succeed in our community."

This is the third grant the Otto Bremer Foundation has awarded the Center for Excellence in Urban Teaching. Past funds have been spent to train more than 1,600 teachers and administrators on issues of urban education, to broaden the community's access to and understanding of urban teaching strategies, to develop a master's degree in urban education, and to create hands-on teaching opportunities for teachers of color in training.
