This directory describes over 280 such programs and services provided by Atlantaarea colleges and universities. It is a tool intended to facilitate further cooperation between educators at all levels. Information found in this directory is based on a survey conducted by the Atlanta Regional Consortium for Higher Education (ARCHE) of its 21 member colleges and universities, a listing of which is found on the back cover. While these institutions have their main campuses in the Atlanta region, the scope of their activities encompasses the State of Georgia. An electronic version of this directory is available on the ARCHE Web site at: Note: The program and service descriptions listed in this directory have been edited for length and consistency of style, but have not been independently verified by ARCHE. Due to the evolving nature of these activities, the reader should confirm the details of any particular program or service with the sponsoring institution before relying on these descriptions. Because of space limitations, programs/services are listed only once in this directory even though they may relate to multiple categories. 1 2 Alternative Teacher Preparation Alternative Teacher Certification Clayton College & State University In this Southern Crescent Alternative Certification Program, Clayton State cooperates with the Metro Regional Education Service Agency (RESA) and area school systems to provide course work for individuals seeking alternate certification through the RESA Contact: Dr. Larnell Flannagan, , Business to Teaching Provides a more flexible route to initial teacher certification for people with undergraduate degrees interested in bringing their professional experiences into the classroom Offers initial certification programs in elementary education, math education, occupational studies, science education, social science education, and special education.
