Services Available to Education Students
The Curriculum Lab/Teacher Resource Center (CuLab) is located in Room KO 176 of the Main Building on the IU Kokomo campus. This information commons provides resources for educators. It houses books and materials for research and lesson planning. Holdings include magazines, puppets, instructional aids, textbooks, computers, and audiovisual items. In addition, the collection of children’s literature, fiction and non-fiction, is quite substantial and diverse. Students are encouraged to utilize the CuLab for individual and small group work. Tables provide space for preparation and construction of materials needed for practicum experiences. Computers, printers, and scanners are available to students as they create documents and develop/ edit their program requirements and course assignments. Events scheduled for the CuLab include New Student Orientation, visits by prospective students, workshops on special topics, and book talks. Student organizations (EdSAC, meshEd, Pi Lambda Theta) hold meetings, open houses, and post information regarding activities.
Placement Services for Education Students
The Office of Placement and Student Services in the School of Education at Bloomington accepts registration from any person who has either earned a degree from Indiana University or who successfully completed 30 credit hours at Indiana University.

The IU Kokomo Office of Career Development and Placement also is available to assist students in preparing and conducting a job search. The office is a point of contact between employers and students or alumni seeking employment.
Opportunities are frequently available for undergraduate students to work with faculty on education research projects, and they may be supported by grants. Each student is strongly encouraged to consult with faculty whose academic area is congruent with the student’s interest.
Students with at least a 3.3 grade point average are eligible to earn both university and education honors. Honors in education may be completed within two years and include a summer internship. Interested students should contact the Honors program director for further information.
