Advancing an Urban Mission: The West Baltimore Pre-K to 16 Urban Education Corridor
Arrington, Pamela Gray
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v11 n3 p23-39 2006
Coppin State University is committed to meeting the educational needs of its urban population and improving the quality of life in its urban community. An institutional pioneer in urban education, Coppin State University is the first higher education institution in the state to assume responsibility for the restructuring and administration of a public elementary school. It is the only higher education institution in the state to locate on its campus a public high school, for which it also serves as operator. The university is actively engaged in preservice and in-service teacher education programs and, in response to the Board of Regents directive, envisions even more involvement in teacher preparation. The West Baltimore Pre-K to 16 Urban Education Corridor is one such initiative. In partnership with the Baltimore City Public School System, the university chose this particular academic focus because of its longstanding urban mission.
