EAN Meeting Group Shot
Education Alumni Network (EAN) members took time out of their Sept. 20, 2014, pre-Homecoming meeting to pose for a group shot. Opportunities for service, professional development, and social networking are available every year to all College of Education Alumni.


Mission of the College of Education Alumni Network (EAN)

The purpose of the College of Education (COE) Alumni Network at the University of St. Francis (USF) is to connect educators who are committed to a Franciscan spirit of service and dedicated to building, promoting, and supporting educational opportunities at all levels. The network is designed to serve the evolving needs of USF COE alumni and encourage collegial interaction among alumni, current candidates, and the COE.


Upcoming EAN Meetings

Education Alumni Network (EAN) Meeting
See what EAN is all about by joining us at our next planning meeting.

A key component in an educator’s professional responsibilities is his/her involvement in professional organizations. EAN provides a perfect opportunity to become involved with such an organization and to even distinguish oneself by taking on a leadership role for the board as we plan professional development, service, and social events each year.

Saturday, October 17 | 9 a.m. | Alumni Gathering Room, Motherhouse 2nd floor

Saturday, January 9 | 9 a.m. | Alumni Gathering Room, Motherhouse 2nd floor
