Professional Development School

The UNI PDS is an innovative partnership with the Cedar Falls and Waterloo community schools. Our PDS recognizes the intertwined nature of the missions of schools and the university and seeks to create a hybrid learning community to bring about our simultaneous renewal. Our PDS promotes exemplary teaching in both school and university settings, creates powerful professional development opportunities and new leadership roles for teachers and university faculty, and focuses on the improvement of PreK-12 student achievement.
