Marian University’s Fred S. Klipsch Educators College and the Simon Youth Foundation (SYF) announced a new educational partnership to provide financial assistance to SYF educators interested in earning licensure or a graduate degree from the Fred S. Klipsch Educators College.
Through the partnership, educators will have various educational opportunities. They will most notably be able to obtain licensure or a graduate degree in education and teaching.
“We are committed to providing teachers and educators with a transformative education that prepares them for success in the profession,” said Dr. LaTonya Turner, dean of Marian University’s Fred S. Klipsch Educators College.
“The Simon Youth Foundation partnership will allow us to extend that commitment to even more teachers and educators across the country.”
Currently celebrating 25 years of academic innovation, SYF has a long-standing mission of supporting high-quality alternative education programs across the U.S. They help reduce the high school dropout rate and encourage students to pursue higher education.
The organization fulfills its mission through 32 Simon Youth Academies in 12 states.
The foundation helps thousands of students reach graduation day each year.
Marian University’s Fred S. Klipsch Educators College shares this commitment to education. They believe that great educators are the life blood of greater opportunities for students.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Marian University,” said Andrea Neely, President and Chief Executive Officer of Simon Youth Foundation.
“Together, we can continue to make a real difference in the lives of young people and our educators because we believe that all youth, no matter their personal circumstances, should have the opportunity to pursue their dreams through education. Our teachers and educators make this dream come true.”
The Simon Youth Foundation and Marian University’s Fred S. Klipsch Educators College say they are both deeply committed to the profession of teaching and to creating more opportunities for well-trained educators who positively impact the lives of their students and communities.
