Columbia Urban Educators

A new TC program will be providing tuition-free Master's degrees for 15 to 25 graduating seniors at Columbia University. The goal of the Columbia Urban Educators (CUE) program is to train people to become New York City public middle school teachers in Harlem and Washington Heights. For the first year of the program, graduate students teach at the schools and receive a beginning teachers salary. They also commit to two years of teaching in the districts. During the summers and weekends of these two academic years, CUE students also take courses to complete a Master's degree, which is required for full certification.
