The Education Fellows program provides an integrated academic and experiential opportunity for students who demonstrate exemplary potential and a desire to impact the education profession. The four-year experience focuses on the themes of connection, engagement, challenge and leadership. It supports fellows as they work together in common courses to co-design innovative solutions to educational challenges that are manifested in schools and communities. Opportunities for undergraduate research, professional development and mentorship from faculty and experts within the field are key components of the EDU-Fellows program. For fellows who choose to continue into the BA to M.Ed. program, a residency option for completion of the student teaching experience is available through partnerships with local school districts.
