Recruitment in Full Drive

The IRT visited 32 institutions this past fall and will be visiting another seven in the spring in an effort to continue to recruit outstanding students of color looking to become educators. Within just a month of the application opening on November 15, we topped 150 applications.

To date, the top five institutions (listed below) with the most prospective students are minority serving and historically black colleges and universities.

  • Brooklyn College, NY
  • City College, NY
  • Langston University, OK
  • Spelman College, GA
  • University of California, Los Angeles

Did you refer a student to the IRT?
Alumni word of mouth is our biggest source for referrals. Please let your students know about the IRT! The application is live, and we are accepting completed applications through March 1.

If you have a student referral, please email Admissions and Recruitment Program Specialist Monica Reum.

Changes to the application

  • Application is now due March 1!
  • Unofficial transcripts can be submitted with your IRT application. Official transcripts are required upon matriculation to the program.
  • Recommenders will be asked to submit a form instead of writing a letter on behalf of the applicant.
