About the Program

Project Midstate Student Support for Teaching


Initiated in 1992, this Partnership program has withstood the test of time.

The partners, the University of Illinois at Springfield, Springfield School District 186, Decatur School District 61, Lincoln Land Community College, and Richland Community College remain committed to the idea that local students can shape the future through teaching.

Program provides a series of planned activities and incentives to increase aptitude for teaching and motivation to teach in the local area.
