Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models

The mission of UIC’s Call Me MiSTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) initiative is to increase the pool of available licensed teachers from a broader, more diverse background. The initiative supports undergraduate students who want to teach and serve as role models in urban elementary schools to positively impact the lives of children.
