Maryland Center for Character Education
Stevenson, MD - On Thursday, November 5, 2009, the Maryland Center for Character Education (MCCE) joined the School of Education at Stevenson University in founding the new Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University. Through this partnership, the University’s School of Education will work with MCCE to integrate character education training into its teacher education curriculum while also providing outreach and training, onsite and online, to primary and secondary schools throughout the state that are seeking to implement character education programs. Deborah Kraft, Interim Dean of the School of Education, joined Dig DeGarmo, President of MCCE, at the November 5 announcement.
Established in 1992, MCCE provides resources to schools, businesses, and community organizations promoting character education and development. MCCE’s primary efforts are focused on identifying and sharing with schools throughout Maryland best practices and resources in character education.
This website provides resources to schools, businesses, and community organizations involved in and concerned with character education. Take advantage of these resources to assist you in your character education efforts.
The new MCCE@SU remains an organization that relies entirely upon private donations of individuals who are committed to building and supporting communities of character. MCCE@SU efforts are focused primarily on identifying, celebrating and sharing character-development "best practices" of schools throughout the state of Maryland. Through its efforts, MCCE@SU raises awareness of and serves as a clearinghouse of information for the character development upon which the advancement of our local, regional, and national communities depend. Such initiatives require financial investment.
Each year the Maryland Center for Character Education at Stevenson University holds an annual Awards Program to honor schools throughout MD who have instituted, developed, and are continuing comprehensive character education initiatives in their school communities. It is a goal of MCCE@SU to promote Character Education throughout the state of Maryland. We encourage every school throughout the state that has developed a comprehensive character education program to apply for this prestigious award. Our goal is to encourage all schools that have a character education program to apply for recognition of “MCCE@SU Best Practices School of the Year” award.
For more information about applying for our award contact Linda Muska at MCCEcharacter@aol.com.
