HGSE's Investment in Teaching

From the introduction of the M.A.T. in 1936 to the launch of the Harvard Teacher Fellows in 2015, the Harvard Graduate School of Education has always been committed to developing innovative, equity-minded, and effective teachers. With the new Teaching and Teacher Leadership (TTL) master's program, the school builds on that legacy, centering the vital importance of the teaching profession in creating opportunities across society — for learners, families, and communities everywhere. And graduate study isn't the only commitment HGSE makes to teachers; we engage with educators throughout careers, offering a robust professional education portfolio that serves teachers, teacher leaders, and instructional coaches across preK-12.

Now, with a game-changing gift to support scholarship aid for new and aspiring teachers, HGSE will expand its commitment to nurturing the teaching profession and celebrating its impact. Read more below.
