About the University of Dallas Catholic Teacher Cohort:
The University of Dallas, as a whole, is shaped by the long tradition of Catholic
learning. In its mission statement, UD "acknowledges its commitment to the Catholic
Church and its teaching." The Catholic Teacher Cohort is testament to that commitment
in two important ways. First the university offers a specialized academic and collegial
community - a "community of practice" - where current and prospective Catholic school
teachers can intermingle while they continue developing their mature understanding
of their faith, develop their teaching skills, and prepare to meet the unique responsibility
of teaching in Catholic schools. Second, the university offers financial support
to members of the Catholic Teacher Cohort in the way of significant reduction in tuition.
