College of Education's Student Advisory Council (COESAC)

COESAC strives to build a community that values learning and diversity. It provides students with opportunities to achieve their full potential.

The mission of the Elementary Education Club is to engage future teachers through hands-on activities, events, and speakers. The speakers who join us give insight into the field of elementary education from multiple points of view, allowing members to learn new ideas and ask questions of those they might not typically have access to. Members participate in a variety of service activities that focus on interacting with elementary-aged children. While this club is most closely aligned with Elementary Education, we are happy to have candidates from across the College who are interested in our focus and want to be involved.

The HES club is a group of Health and Exercise Science Students who gain personal and professional development by working together to interact and have fun through activities/events that allow us to get to know other people in our major. This club also facilitates workshops to expand and further our education. We attend conventions, conferences, and workshops as a group, such as the NJAHPERD annual convention. We also plan and conduct events to get the university active and involved, which include climbing nights, tournaments and Hoops for Heart. The HES club works together to better our community and help raise money for important organizations such as the American Heart Association.
