Syracuse Urban Inclusive Teacher Residency Program

About the SUITR Program

The Syracuse University School of Education and partnering schools in the Syracuse City School District are cooperating to implement the Syracuse Urban Inclusive Teacher Residency (SUITR) program for select students in the Inclusive Special Education Grades 7-12 Generalist master’s degree program, to support highly qualified and motivated teachers to work in high needs urban secondary schools. Through 8 ½ months of full-time urban teacher residency, special education teacher candidates will link classroom theory to their daily practice, with real-time mentoring by a support team of school special educators and content teachers.

Through stipends and scholarships, SUITR students will receive a 60-75% discount on the full cost of tuition for this master's degree!

Enrollment in this program is competitive. A limited number of spots (10) are available at this discount for the Summer 2019 SUITR cohort. This program is co-funded by the Syracuse City School District and the Syracuse University School of Education. Stipend recipients must agree to a two-year minimum teaching commitment in the Syracuse City School District upon completion of the program.

By participating in this program you will receive:

Core Components

  • Residency Placement – two semesters in a high needs school (full day, Middle School and High School)
  • Context-Specific coursework
  • Continuous feedback from both mentor team and School of Education Faculty
  • Summer Institute with Syracuse City SD mentors and the SU leadership team
