UNCG Student North Carolina Association of Educators

SNCAE is a professional organization for college students preparing to become teachers. The organization provides members with opportunities to connect with those pursuing the same goals as well as gain resources for professional learning and development beyond the classroom. SNCAE also serves as the student’s voice in public education in North Carolina. Opportunities include conference attendance, professional development workshops, and special events that promote student engagement with teaching professionals currently in the field. Members can pursue leadership positions on campus as well as at the state level. Additionally, UNCG student members also coordinate, volunteer, and plan education activities during campus events such as the annual Children’s Festival and serve as reading volunteers at the local elementary schools.  For local chapter information email soeinfo@uncg.edu.

Kappa Delta Pi

Kappa Delta Pi, International Honor Society in Education, founded by Dr. William Bagley in 1911 at the University of Illinois, was established to foster excellence in education and promote fellowship among those dedicated to teaching. The founders chose the name from the Greek words to represent knowledge, duty, and power. Pioneering from its beginning by including women as well as men, Kappa Delta Pi grew from a local chapter to the international organization it is today, comprising 600 chapters and more than 40,000 members.
