School Of Education FAQ –

MCLIC is funded through the Morris Hood, Jr. Educator Development (MHED) Program was created by the Michigan State Legislature in 1998 as part of the larger King•Chávez•Parks Initiative.  The legislative intent is to increase the number of underrepresented students, especially males, who enroll in and complete K-12 teacher education programs at the baccalaureate level at state-approved teacher education institutions.  The MHED program targets African American, Latino, and Native American students who historically have been underrepresented in K-12 teacher education programs.
