School of Education


A student organization, the Education Student Advisory Council (EdSAC), represents elementary student concerns to the School of Education to faculty and administration. In addition, EdSAC provides opportunities for education and service to students beyond the formal classroom. The organization promotes educational leadership skills and assists the School in various professional activities.
