SWEP is a collaborative network of local school districts and the College of Education and Leadership.

SWEP Programming

We provide opportunity and access for beginning teachers, mentors, and districts to maximize teacher effectiveness to ensure student learning.

Cardinal Stritch University and area school districts in southeastern Wisconsin have joined together as a consortium to meet districts' mentoring and new teacher induction needs. The consortium provides its members with ongoing training and support to meet PI 34 requirements and collaboration to share ideas, resources, and expenses. As a SWEP consortium member, you will have access to:

Research-based induction program models

  • Best practices in mentoring and teaching
  • Initial educator standards-based support seminars
  • Inter-district professional development plan (PDP) reviewer team database & PI 34 guidance
  • Inter-district networking
  • Mentor training and Mentoring Certificate program
  • The SEWNTP Wikispace to foster dialogue, discussion, and sharing of resources, across diverse districts, beyond the structured time of our offerings.
