Student Diversity in the College of Education
Launched in Spring 2015, the TEDO Student Group serves as a vehicle for conversation and support for TED students who identify as belonging to underrepresented groups including, but not limited to, students of color, LGBTQ students, immigrant students, and international students. The group is student-led with support from Ferial Pearson, Dr. Becky Pasco, Dr. Kathy Peterson and Dr. Sandra Rodriguez-Arroyo from the Teacher Education Department and Dr. Gerry Huber and Huai-Mei Furman from the Office of Academic Advising . The four sponsors handle the organizational, logistical, and technical aspects of working with the student group, but encourage any and all TED faculty join in its activities.
The group works each academic year to building a "critical mass" of TED students who will work with students and faculty to ascertain events and activities appropriate for the group's mission and goals.
