About Deans for Impact

Deans for Impact is a national nonprofit organization that empowers leaders in educator preparation who want to transform the way we prepare future teachers. We believe the United States should have the greatest system of educator preparation in the world, one where we consistently prepare teachers to be good on day one, and on the path to be great over time.

We support leaders across a diverse set of institutions, including former land grant colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Hispanic-Serving Institutions, private research universities, and newer practice-focused programs. All told, we are currently working with over 45 leaders of educator-preparation programs located in 24 states and Washington, D.C.

We believe that system change requires transformation across multiple dimensions, and the work we do reflects that philosophy. Through our Impact Academy fellowship, we help new leaders identify their visions for change, and develop plans for implementation with our ongoing support. Through our Building Blocks workshop series, we help teams of leaders orient their visions around specific design principles that we believe lead to better prepared beginning teachers. Through our Common Indicators System initiative, we are coordinating cross-institutional work to gather and analyze evidence of teacher-candidate knowledge and skills and of program quality.

And wrapped around all of this is our policy effort to amplify the voices of solutions-oriented leaders and create the enabling conditions that will support the transformation of educator preparation.

At Deans for Impact, we believe that a great workplace is one where you are inspired by your colleagues and deeply engaged in your work every day.
