What is ACES?

ACES is a student organization dedicated to enhancing communications between education students by promoting fellowship and supplement professional training through extra and co-curricular activities related to education. As an adjunct to classroom coursework and service learning, members will ​meet to explore mutual areas of concern or interest in attitudes and outlooks necessary to becoming effective professional educators.

For more information about ACES, to see the calendar of upcoming events, and to join, go to our official website on OrgSync.
