NABSE's new partnership with The National Research Center for College and University Admissions (NRCUA) will be instrumental in achieving our goal of providing career resources to our members and high school students, and ultimately, increasing the pipeline for African American Teachers. My College Options is a nationwide service that gives college-bound students the ability to match their personal goals and interests (including academics, co-curricular activities, location preferences, and attitudes) with the offerings of 3,500 accredited post-secondary institutions in the United States.

Pipeline for African American Teachers
Read the NABSE 2009 Student Survey Report.

The National Research Center for College & University AdmissionsTM (NRCCUA®), the leading organization connecting young people and their families with colleges and universities, has achieved a significant milestone in their partnership with the National Alliance of Black School Educators (NABSE) in creating the Pipeline for African American Teachers.

In order to encourage and support future African American educators, NRCCUA has contacted over eighty Historically Black Colleges and Universities and offered, free of charge, the names of African American seniors interested in teaching who live near those college and universities. In turn, each college was asked to reach out to these students with information about enrolling at their institution while encouraging them to continue working towards a career in teaching.

NRCCUA in conjunction with NABSE will be reaching out to future African American teachers with a quarterly newsletter designed to help them reach their teaching goals.

As one of NRCCUA's first research partners, NABSE is the nation's premiere non-profit organization devoted to furthering the academic success for the nation's children, particularly those of African descent. Over the last three years the two organizations have worked to develop and build the Pipeline program.

Today, over 190,000 African American high school students have identified themselves as interested in devoting their lives to teaching.

NRCCUA - The National Research Center for College & University Admissions (NRCCUA) is a non-profit education research organization based in Lee's Summit, MO. For over 37 years, NRCCUA has conducted the largest nationwide survey of high school students, which serves as a communications link between college-bound high school students and public and private colleges and universities.
