Call Me MISTER is a highly competitive program that seeks to increase the applicant pool of qualified male teachers from diverse, underserved, socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. The program prepares them for impactful careers as elementary, middle, or high school teachers in the state’s lowest-performing pre-K-12 schools, working with educationally at-risk pre-K-12 students. Call Me MISTER includes a $5,000 scholarship that is renewable each year.
Once admitted to the University of Lynchburg, program applicants may be admitted into the Call Me MISTER program as first-years or transfer students, if space is available. Selected student participants, known as MISTERs, must pursue a program of study in a teacher education major leading to a baccalaureate degree.
CELC teacher preparation license programs include: Biology Education, Chemistry Education, Earth Science Education, Elementary Education, English Education, Health and Physical Education, History and Social Science Education, Mathematics Education, Music Education (instrumental and vocal), Spanish Education, and Special Education.
Students who apply to be a MISTER must major in one of these initial teacher preparation license programs.
Call Me MISTER is designed to promote a collaborative environment where selected education majors work closely with faculty in on-campus classrooms, as well as with teachers in pre-K-12 classroom settings, in professional organizations, and through children-based service opportunities.
