Events in the education department are an opportunity to build community, expand the limits of our knowledge and experience, and engage with those within and beyond our campus community who can inspire us.

While our events change from year to year, we have a few kinds of events that have become mainstays in our department. We look forward to meeting you at one of these and other events.

  • Education department teas: Held each semester, the department tea is open to all students. It is a relaxed and casual gathering for students and faculty to get to know each other outside of classes and an excellent opportunity to ask questions about our programs.

  • Education department open houses: Held each semester before course registration, the open houses are an opportunity for students to learn about our program, preview the upcoming semester’s courses, and ask questions about course selection. The open house is often accompanied by a panel discussion featuring current education minors or local alum.

  • Stoling ceremony: As a small and intimate department, we have a unique opportunity to get to know our students as they pursue the program. Each spring, during the week before commencement, we hold a special ceremony for our graduating education studies majors. We present each student with a celebratory speech and education stole to wear on commencement day.
