March 12, 1997. 

On this day, the campus announced that the Indiana University School of Education at IUPUI's Learning to Teach/Teaching to Learn program won second place in the national Distinguished Program in Teacher Education contest.

The contest, run by the Association of Teacher Educators, recognized the three-year-old IUPUI program for its effective work with Indianapolis-area public schools. LT/TL immersed education students in public-school classrooms, from doing lesson plans to running after-school activities. Participating faculty noted that the program was unique in the level of cooperation between IUPUI and public schools.
