At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

The Institute for Recruitment of Teachers

The Institute for Recruitment of Teachers supports students committed to diversity issues who wish to attain advanced degrees in education, the humanities, social sciences, and math and then pursue careers in education, administration, or counseling at K-12 schools or colleges and universities.

In addition to securing application fee waivers, they assist students with all parts of their graduate school applications and advocate for their admission to master’s and doctoral degree programs at 41 consortium graduate schools.

Since 1990, IRT students have enjoyed remarkable success gaining entry to and funding at many of our country’s top graduate programs, earning master’s and doctoral degrees, and securing jobs as K-12 and college teachers, professors, counselors, and administrators. They help students at no financial cost to them or the programs and universities with which they are affiliated.

A representative from the IRT will be on campus Wednesday, March 16th, 2011.
