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.
IUPUI's faculty, staff, and students are innovators in their fields. To learn more about the School of Education's activities, please contact IUPUI Special Collections and Archives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
