As the premier program in the Portland metropolitan area, we partner with over 100 schools and 18 school systems, sharing the belief that education is a matter of justice, and that gaps in achievement and social opportunity can be addressed by skilled educators formed by mission.

Our dedicated, full-time faculty hold doctoral degrees from leading universities, providing a level of expertise both geographically diverse and unique to the metropolitan area.
