“Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today.” — Malcolm X
Created to prepare educational studies majors to respond to the challenges that rural communities face. TARTANS prepares students to be excellent teachers who are also well-versed in the distinctive aspects of rural living: understanding agriculture and the rural economy, nurturing the environment, re-imagining the immigrant experience, and networking among stakeholders in a community.
Through consistent programming, networking and instruction, TARTANS students articulate how they plan to become visionary teachers in rural areas.
