About the Portal
These resources were developed primarily for Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs), who educate a disproportionate number of our country’s diverse teachers. Currently, MSIs who have been engaged with BranchED have free access to these materials. However, all EPPs can benefit from these materials and we welcome the opportunity to partner with other institutions if a tool would benefit its EPP.
