With more than 80 clubs and organizations on campus, you will find endless opportunities to get involved, and you'll find that students in the School of Education are some of the most active on campus. In addition to all the general athletic, social, and service activities at Endicott, there are many education-related opportunities to get involved.
National Science Teachers Association Student Chapter
The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) is the largest organization in the world committed to promoting excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all. NSTA's current membership of over 60,000 includes science teachers, science supervisors, administrators, scientists, business and industry representatives, and others involved in and committed to science education. The Endicott College Student Chapter of NSTA is open to a variety of majors whose goal is to promote excellence and innovation in science teaching and learning for all. We host a variety of events including: science nights at local elementary schools, various after school programs, museum trips, and on-campus events for the Endicott community and the larger local community.

The Education Club provides opportunities for education students to enrich their lives and the lives of others through peer support and mentoring, community service, field trips to local museums and historical societies, as well as events for children and their families.
Faculty advisor: Lynne Stasiak
Autism Awareness Organization
The Autism Awareness Organization is open to all undergraduate students who are interested in learning more about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and in actively helping the Endicott community understand the available “evidence-based practices” established to treat this disorder. Our main purpose is to raise awareness of ASD, working to educate the student body, faculty, and staff on what ASD is and how everyone can help support individuals on the spectrum. The Autism Awareness Organization has become a vital asset to the Endicott College community, because we raise awareness of the Applied Behavior Analysis program offered at the College, provide all students with the opportunity to expand their knowledge of autism, and reach out to the local North Shore community in order make a lasting impact in this field.
Faculty advisor: Michael Dorsey
Kappa Delta Pi Honor Society
Education students who excel academically are invited to be members of Kappa Delta Pi honor society. Students admitted to the education honors society are actively engaged in coordinating special events for the academic enrichment of the society's members, as well as service to the community.
Faculty advisor: Sara Quay
Service Learning Opportunities
Education faculty and students partner to develop and implement various initiatives in local schools, including in-class tutoring, reading programs and after-school programs in subjects such as science and literacy. For more information please contact Kathleen McLaughlin.
Education students are able to explore the philosophy of the early childhood schools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, which emphasizes the "culture of childhood" and the images and potentials of the young child within that culture. Through college course work, as well as travel to the town of Reggio Emilia, students learn how to facilitate learning experiences that encourage young children to wonder, to investigate, and to construct knowledge.
