UTeach Induction

UTeach graduates from all UTeach programs across the state are serviced by their closest UTeach Induction coordinator. We are proud to have the first North Texas Metroplex Regional Induction coordinator housed at UTeach Dallas at UT Dallas.  Induction from UTD works closely with Teach North Texas Induction and UTA Teach. Induction workshops are held approximately once a month for all graduates of UTeach in the North Texas Metroplex area. We currently have a 93% retention rate and we know it is partly because of the Induction program. Below is the link to the current schedule.
