In September, 2012, the Center for International Education (CIE) in the College of Education was awarded a $1 million sub-contract from AMIDEAST, with USAID West Bank & Gaza funding, to help with the reform of teacher education in the West Bank and Gaza, Palestine. The project, Leadership and Teacher Development, is a comprehensive education reform initiative focused on supporting the Ministry of Education and Higher Education's national effort in teacher development. The overall goal is to improve the quality of education through a comprehensive approach to leadership and teacher development, concentrating on in-service teachers in grades 5-10, principals, and supervisors, and the macro policy context.
