The TEACH Learning Community is a living and learning community for first-year students who are pursuing majors in elementary or secondary education. TEACH is designed to bring students, faculty, and staff together to explore the world of education.

Members of the TEACH Learning Community enjoy:

  • Connecting with students who have similar academic goals
  • Taking two of the most high-demand Teacher Education courses during their first year
  • Engaging in classroom experiences at the elementary and middle school level
  • Academic advising for the College of Education located in their residence hall
  • Building a network of support among local educators

In addition to a shared academic and residential experience, TEACH members will have the opportunity to engage with students, teachers, and administrators in local school districts.
