College of Education Alumni Network (EAN)

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

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.
