RESOURCES AND OPPORTUNITIES
Student PSEA membership prepares teaching candidates to assume the responsibilities of active professional growth and collaboration in their professional careers. Members are covered by a million-dollar insurance policy as they observe in area classrooms. Members compete for the Lucy Valero scholarship for student educators, and receive two publications: Voice and NEA Today, which contain valuable information for the future educator.
SPSEA members develop leadership and professional opportunities. Villanova’s chapter, in partnership with the Rosemont College members, invite speakers, and offer programs on topics of interest to pre-professionals. They also have an opportunity to attend the annual conference for Pennsylvania chapters, to meet active educators from around the state and participate in workshops and presentations.
Kappa Delta Pi, an International Honor Society in Education, is dedicated to scholarship and excellence in education. Society membership is open to junior and senior undergraduates who are Secondary education majors and have achieved a 3.0 GPA. Undergraduates need to be in the second semester of their Junior year. The US Department of Education and Human Services compiles a list of all eligible students and sends invitations for the induction ceremony.
College and University Resources
In addition to resources and opportunities through the Education and Counseling Department, Villanova provides support to undergraduate students in all aspects of their collegiate experience and beyond through the centralized services of the Office for Undergraduate Students, Office of Education Abroad and Career Center.
