​The mission of the Call Me MISTER® (acronym for Mentors Instructing Students Toward Effective Role Models) Initiative is to increase the pool of available teachers from a broader more diverse background particularly among the State's lowest performing elementary schools. Student participants are largely selected from among underserved, socio-economically disadvantaged and educationally at-risk communities.​ ​​​

The project provides:

  • Opportunities to get tuition assistance through Loan Forgiveness programs for admitted students pursuing approved programs of study in teacher education at participating colleges (GPA requirement).
  • An academic support system to help assure their success.
  • A cohort system for social and cultural support.
  • Assistance with job placement.

Call Me MISTER® was founded at Clemson University in 2000 and UHD is the first college in Texas to be a part of the national project in joining with other national partnering colleges. This program is housed in the Department of Urban Education in the College of Public Service.​
