Call Me MISTER Program
The mission of the Call Me MISTER (Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) initiative is to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader more diverse background particularly among the state’s lowest performing elementary schools. The MISTER initiative attempts to accomplish this by providing academic, social, and financial support to under-represented individuals interested in entering the teaching profession.
Interdisciplinary scholars bring together knowledge and skills from more than one academic field in order to solve big problems for a complex world. Students pursuing an Interdisciplinary Degree (IDS) at Lander complete half their major in one field and half in another, and most interdisciplinary programs require an internship. With a broad skill set and real-world experience, IDS majors are primed for success in the workforce or graduate school.
