WCSU Education Club
The purpose of the WCSU Education Club is to develop in prospective educators an understanding of the education profession, to provide for a united student voice in matters affecting their profession, to influence the conditions under which prospective educators are prepared , to advance the interests and welfare of students preparing for a career in education, to promote and project human and civil rights, and to stimulate the highest ideals of professional ethics, standards, and attitudes.
The date and time of Education Club Meetings are determined each semester by the officers and their schedules. Once a day and time are established in September, the club meets on the same day of the week each month and at the same time for that semester. All meetings are held on the second floor of the Student Center. If you can come for only one part of the meeting this is not a problem as everyone has a different class schedule. Each time you attend a meeting or take part in an activity you are awarded points. With enough points you will given an award at the Apple Banquet held at the end of the year in a very nice restaurant. Any changes in meetings will be noted on the web site. All minutes of past meetings will also be included on the web site.
