Clubs and Organizations

The College of Education encourages students to get involved in the college and campus community. One of the best ways to do so is to join one of our more than 10 student clubs and organizations. Students gain excellent leadership, community service, fundraising and event planning experience while meeting new people. Below is a list of the college’s organizations.

Education Council promotes leadership in education and all campus activities, unity among students in the College of Education, and College spirit.
