CTAPP has had the esteem pleasure of working alongside leading Teacher Preparation Transformation Centers (TPTCs) from across the country in a community of practice (CoP). The TPTC CoP meets regularly to develop tools and resources, grounded in research, to assist teacher preparation programs in providing equitable access to high-quality teacher preparation pathways.
To achieve a shared vision of sustainable, quality teacher preparation programming that is scaled to impact Black, Latino, and low-income students from historically marginalized PK-12 school systems, the TPTCs work together to implement the outcomes outlined in Teacher Preparation Outcomes and Indicators (TPP O&Is). The TPP O&Is provide a framework for achieving high-quality teacher preparation under the domains of quality, sustainability, scale, and impact. Additionally, the TPP O&Is emphasize a critical lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) to promote anti-racist systems, practices, and tools within teacher preparation programs.
Developed to support these goals, the DEI Companion Document guides educator preparation programs through the process of identifying and improving blind spots in their programming related to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Explore the document below, check out the linked resources, and consider an equity cross-walk through your program's various structures to ensure promotion of equitable teacher preparation principles.

The DEI Companion Document was created by members of the TPTC CoP - the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Small group - to guide TA Centers and teacher preparation programs who are seeking to engage more deeply in DEI and antiracism work related to teacher preparation programming. All linked resources are attributed to the various parties who created them.
