»Home »Recruitment


Within the Office of Recruitment, Preparation and Recognition, the Educator Recruitment Initiative (ERI) works to support institutions of higher learning, school districts and other educational entities to encourage a more robust and diverse pool of teachers for the state of New Jersey.  The initiative's three major goals are to:

  1. Strive for student access to high quality educators of diverse backgrounds in every content and geographic area as well as district factor group;
  2. Increase awareness and promote positive messaging about the teaching profession and encourage individuals to explore the profession in New Jersey; and
  3. Provide more effective and efficient resources for those hiring and retaining educators, and prospective and current educators.
