DSU hosts Teach for America Center
Delta State University officials are making preparations to welcome a new group of students and teachers to the campus. Over 800 people will begin arriving on campus in June for the Teach For America training institute.
In July 2009, Teach for America announced it would open its first Mississippi Delta teacher training institute at Delta State University in Cleveland, Miss. in June 2010. The Delta institute will be the eighth Teach For America training location and the first in a rural area, joining Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, New York City, Philadelphia, and Phoenix.
