Webster Grant Exceeds Expectations, STL Mosaic Project Played A Role  

Webster University was awarded a $2.7 million National Professional Development (NPD) grant in 2017 for a five-year project to prepare 120 St. Louis-area teachers to meet the needs of English learners (ELs) through coursework leading to state English Language Learner (ELL) certification and Saturday Seminars to promote communities of practice and increase family, parent and community engagement.
