Who We Are

CfUT, located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, was founded in 2001 at Wisconsin Lutheran College by two education professors in response to the critical need for improved educational experiences for our students in urban schools. The need to expand the pipeline to meet the demand for urban educators prompted CfUT to become an independent organization in May 2013.
