Events and Celebrations

Celebrating the accomplishments of our faculty, staff, students and alumni is a primary focus of the Office of Community Relations and Outreach.  Our office coordinates fall and spring graduation recognition events, an annual scholarship and donor recognition ceremony and the Educator’s Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

We also work to create opportunities for faculty and staff to connect with alumni and each other by hosting smaller events like our Homecoming “Breakfast on the Porch” and the Dean’s Holiday Open House.  The Treasured Pirate Award program allows faculty and staff in the College to recognize special and unique contributions of their colleagues throughout the year.

If you have questions about any of the events hosted by the College of Education or want help planning an event for your department we would be happy to provide additional information through phone or email.  Come see us!
