Warner School of Education

  • The Warner School’s ROC Urban Teaching Fellows Program was launched to ease the teacher shortage in Rochester while providing future educators unparalleled hands-on classroom experience and mentorship. Fellows are hired by the school district, compensated with salary with benefits, and provided $10,000 toward college tuition.
  • Scholarship support provided critical financial assistance through a guaranteed 50% school counseling scholarship to help address a statewide shortage. These scholarships help to support our UR undergraduate GRADE students. GRADE is also building a pathway for RCSD students to go from high school to UR, and then to Warner - expanding access for local students to pursue teaching and counseling professions.
  • The Warner School’s Center for Urban Education Success (CUES) launched a study involving CUES researchers and a high school English teacher from East High School. This study empowered students to become community advocates by researching problems in their neighborhoods, and then proposing and presenting solutions based on what they learned.
