The participation in and completion of teacher education programs by students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds is one of the biggest challenges facing higher education institutions today. The success of teacher education programs in responding to this challenge is related to their ability to incorporate diversity into all aspects of their programs. Using the MSETP as an example, this article presents a framework for diversifying teacher education programs to successfully recruit and support culturally and linguistically diverse students into the field of special education.
