The MidValley Consortium (MVC) for Teacher Education is a collaborative effort of four colleges and universities and seven school divisions in the Shenandoah Valley. 

Its goals are to: 

  • develop a cadre of clinical faculty who are exemplary models of effective teaching and strong mentors for their student teachers,
  • develop and nurture leadership abilities in clinical faculty, and
  • facilitate greater cooperation and communication among consortium members.

The MVC Mentorship and Clinical Experience Team (MCET) representing teachers, administrators, and teacher educators meets monthly to plan consortium activities.  The MCET and MidValley Consortium Advisory Council meet to evaluate consortium projects, set policy, and approve the annual budget.  Each school division and college or university supports consortium activities (see Calendar of Activities).
