This article reviews the efforts of the teacher education program at the University of Colorado Denver to examine the extent to which culturally responsive practices were evident in their program and to provide professional development supports to faculty as they undertook course revision work. External evaluation of the program highlighted: a near absence of community-based learning experiences for teacher candidates, a glaring concern regarding their limited conceptualization of social justice and diversity, and a need for enhanced efforts at recruitment of diverse teacher candidates. The authors describe how professional development was designed and implemented and ensuing programmatic changes. The authors conclude with recommendations for such programmatic changes.
