Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) recently announced leaders who will guide its 2014 seminar season. These educators, K-12 through the university level, represent the inclusive and creative focus that distinguishes this unique professional development initiative. Fifty-four CMS teachers and eight UNC Charlotte and Davidson College faculty will lead the 2014 CTI Seminars. CTI is a partnership of UNC Charlotte, Davidson College and CMS working to cultivate content knowledge, creativity, leadership skills and collaboration within and among CMS teachers.
"Our teacher leaders from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) and our faculty leaders from UNC Charlotte and Davidson College are the lifeblood of our work,” said Scott Gartlan, CTI executive director. “They offer a depth and breadth of experience and knowledge that is critical to our efforts to strengthen teaching in CMS.”

UNC Charlotte’s Women’s History Month programs will showcase and discuss the many issues facing women throughout history. Sponsored by the Multicultural Resource Center (MRC), the programs are free and open to the public.
"Women’s experiences are very complex, and the issues for women intersect with a lot of other communities," said Joshua Burford, assistant director for sexual / gender diversity for the MRC. "We wanted to expand the conversation to talk about women and their allies from both a contemporary and historical context."
