Student Life Overview

Class Experience

We are a learning community in action, and our programmatic offerings reflect that. To better prepare our teacher candidates, we create opportunities for them to observe classrooms, beginning early in their academic careers. 

In their sophomore year, early childhood education and elementary education teacher candidates observe educational best practices in our partner schools through our Teaching in Learning Communities 1 (TLC1) and Teaching in Learning Communities 2 (TLC2) courses. Those who aspire to teach at the high school level will earn their bachelor's degrees in their subject matter content, and then segue into a master's degree program to prepare to become future educators.

Social Engagement

Faculty extend opportunities to undergraduate students to deepen their understanding of their chosen field through research and community engagement, in various ways. For Instance, Kappa Delta Pi (Education Honors Society) holds annual pajama parties for local schoolchildren, to encourage literacy; and the Dean's office organizes yearly cultural and educational outreach trips to India, where students write and deliver lessons at our global partner school, Diane Raj School in Bharatpur.

We welcome high schoolers headed into their senior year to enroll in our two-week summer program Rowan Urban Teacher Academy (RUTA). Participants work with professors and urban educators to expand their understanding of the profession, while gaining hands-on classroom experience.

In addition, we encourage teacher candidates to join one of the following clubs:
