Call Me MISTER Program, College of Education

Kansas State University’s Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models, Call Me MISTER initiative, works to increase the pool of male teachers from diverse backgrounds in schools and particularly among the state's lowest performing elementary schools. Participants are selected from among under-served, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities. Upon program completion, MISTERs who become certified teachers are expected to teach in a public school one year for each year they received financial support from the program. Established in 2016, K-State’s Call Me MISTER program will graduate its first participant in December 2018. You can help MISTERs gain leadership and mentorship training, which will impact future generations.
