The National Board Resource Center is located at Stanford University and operates under the direction and support of the Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education. Our primary mission is to offer support to educational systems and teachers around National Board certification, one of the most widely-recognized and important milestones for a professional educator in the US. We especially seek to open access for candidates who are often underserved in the teaching profession, including teachers of color and teachers working in low-income and/or rural communities.
