Benin Project CLIMB Initiative

Project CLIMB (Collaborative Link for Instructor Mentoring in Benin) involves seven professors from the School of Education who are collaborating with school inspectors and educational leaders in the West African nation of Benin to improve the educational system.

The project provides support for curriculum development; professional development for Beninese teachers and school administrators; and has a major focus on encouraging girls to enter and remain in school. The team is led by Alfred Frederick, professor of Curriculum & Instruction and Fulbright Lecturer/Visiting Specialist in Benin.
