The College of Education’s newly renovated, 2700 square foot Academic Success Center (ASC) opened in May 2014 in Rivers Building. The ASC houses Academic Advising, the Office of Professional Development and Teaching Fellows/Maynard/Abernathy Scholars and the Education Housing Community.
One interesting feature of the new space are the private cubicles. These cubicles allow advisors to privately meet with students for counseling appointments. The ASC also has a spacious, comfortable waiting area for students, as well as a meeting space complete with presentation technology for student trainings and meetings.
Five Academic Advising staff serve approximately 900 undergraduate students in elementary education, English education, history education, middle grades education, mathematics education, science education and special education general and adaptive curricula.
The Office of Professional Development and Student Outreach offers teacher education students pre-service professional development opportunities and Praxis preparation workshops. They also host Clinical Teacher Conferences each year, which are attended by approximately 250 teachers.
The Office for the North Carolina Teaching Fellows, ECU Maynard Scholars, ECU Abernathy Scholars and the Education Housing Community provides educational leadership events and seminars and community outreach activities for their students, as well as recruitment for prospective teacher education students.
