Project ElevatED

In 2019, Florida educators of the year were recognized on the field at the FSU Family Weekend football game. Celebrating educators on a public stage marked the launch of Project ElevatED, a concerted effort to recruit, train and retain more educators in the workforce and recognize them for the important work they do.


Recruit Train Retain graphicThrough these lenses of recruitment, training and retention, we engage with prospective students to recruit and inspire new education professionals; train the next generation of education professionals with cutting-edge research and teaching techniques; and provide opportunities for professional development and recognition to retain more education professionals in the field.

Throughout the process, our programs serve as pathways to meaningful careers that leave a lasting impact. Education is the profession that creates all other professions, and we can better serve our university, our state, and our nation by providing better training, support and recognition of the teachers, counselors, administrators, coaches and other professionals who work with students every day.
