Christina Partners with WilmU to Offer Exclusive Cohort Program

Great News! The College of Education at Wilmington University is dedicated to finding innovative ways to help our Delaware educators and students receive the support they need to succeed. The University has partnered with Christina School District to increase the number of qualified educators in high-needs areas. We developed a cohort certificate program to accomplish this. Wilmington University offers three different graduate-level certificates:

  • Special Education: K-12 Teacher of Students with Disabilities
  • Special Education: Autism and Severe Intellectual Disabilities
  • Special Education: Early Childhood Exceptional Children

All three of these certificates can be completed in less than a year (five 3-credit courses) and with the cohort program, students can work collaboratively with their colleagues to complete the courses with instructors, modalities, and locations chosen by the district.

Wilmington University is offering a tuition discount benefit and waiving admissions and e-folio fees for Christina School District staff using the cohort format.

Benefits of the Cohort

  • 10% tuition discount
  • Admissions fee & Taskstream fee both waived
  • Cohorts are complete in less than one year’s time (5 courses total - 3 credits each)
  • Increased number of teachers more qualified in high-need areas
  • Candidates are able to collaborate with other teachers in the district
