FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 

New On-line University Brings Distinctive Training for School Administrators
The Positive Applications for Improving Racial Relationships (PAIRR) University will be opening its doors on December 1, providing school administrators an opportunity to learn how to lead cultural and equity challenges in their school or district.

Cherry Hill, New Jersey (November 10, 2017) – School administrators will soon be able to learn how to facilitate the Promoting Positive Racial Teacher Student Classroom Relationships workshop.  The university, called PAIRR University will be opening its doors on December 1, 2017 – becoming the first university to teach school administrators how to facilitate a workshop that promotes positive racial teacher student classroom relationships. 

Located at www.pairruniversity.com, the PAIRR University is not the typical on-line diversity training university. School leaders who attend the university will receive more than just the minimal blueprint, according to Dr. Derrick L Campbell, the university director. “The courses offered will propel school administrators to become experts in facilitating diversity trading that promotes positive racial teacher student classroom relationships.”

The Positive Applications for Improving Racial Relationships University caters to school administrators who desire to take on the leadership role for promoting positive racial teacher student classroom relationships. “Through the training of our unique programs, school administrators will enhance their schools culture and eliminate any possible perceptions associated with racism.”

Although PAIRR University is a new university, its founding Director, Dr. Derrick L Campbell has extensive experience in promoting positive racial teacher student classroom relationships. He has a deep understanding of the cultural and equity challenges that schools continue to face. In fact, he has successfully facilitated the process for a number of schools. 

PAIRR University is an innovative university that was founded on the principle that every good educator desires to develop an environment that is conducive for all students. The university represents a very timely, trendy, and effective solution for schools in need of cutting edge diversity training at a fraction of the cost. School leaders have an opportunity to learn to transform their school in their own time and at their own pace.
