Woodrow Wilson Fellows Recognized

From the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship website:

Chancellor Jim Petro announced today at the Ohio Statehouse that the Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship will expand from four to seven university campuses in Ohio in the coming year, including the University of Dayton. Petro also welcomed members of the program’s inaugural class. These Fellows have been accepted into the program as high-quality math and science teacher candidates for high-need Ohio schools - two of whom are John Carroll University students.

Universities joining the Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship are Ohio University, the University of Dayton, and the University of Toledo. Each will participate in the 2011-12 recruitment cycle, announcing their first classes of Fellows in spring 2012. These universities join four others already involved in the program: John Carroll University, the Ohio State University, the University of Akron and the University of Cincinnati. A map of the Ohio universities participating in the program can be found here.

The Woodrow Wilson Ohio Teaching Fellowship recruits accomplished career changers and outstanding recent college graduates in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (the STEM fields) who will prepare for math and science teaching positions in the state’s urban and rural schools.
