Call Me MISTER Program

Eastern Kentucky University is part of a national initiative designed to encourage more African-American males to dedicate their lives to becoming role-models in the field of education. The program, named MISTER (the Mentors Instructing Students towards Effective Role Models), began at South Carolina’s Clemson University as a strategy to recruit teachers under the direction of Dr. Roy Jones.

The Call Me MISTER® Program invites all education majors and prospective education majors to become a member of an exciting mentoring and teacher leadership program. According to Dr. Roy Jones, "The MISTERs learn values, leadership skills, mentoring and how to be role models. It is those skills, paired with their academic preparation that will make them distinctive in the classroom."
