Help JMU produce the exceptional and engaged teachers who understand that caring goes hand in hand with academic expertise.


You can help prepare exceptional teachers

In today’s imperfect world, it takes more than test scores and the three Rs to make an educated child. It takes support for dedicated teachers who are academically prepared and expert in helping schoolchildren excel scholastically, personally and interpersonally.

Your gift to JMU’s nationally renowned and proven teacher education endeavor can transform the performance of our public schools because it produces those engaged and expert teachers.      

When you give, you support JMU’s demonstrated clinical approach to seeking and teaching best practices that suit real children and real classrooms, not idealized ones. You support JMU’s recognized expertise in each of the specific teacher content areas, a grounding in the liberal arts, faculty-student collaboration, multiple real-world practicum experiences for student-teachers, and strong and creative teaching-learning partnerships with school systems.
By giving to JMU's education programs, you support an engaged Madison vision that works. JMU’s teacher education graduates continue to be among the most highly recruited new teachers by today’s schools.

You can help transform our nation’s standard for preparing the best teachers and meaningfully educate America’s schoolchildren. Your gift makes it possible.
