The College of Education will host its bi-annual Teacher Education Induction Convocation. Two hundred seventy-seven students have satisfied requirements for admission into the Teacher Education Program and are invited to participate in the formal ceremony, the official induction of students into that field of study. Bobbi Petersen, volleyball head coach, will deliver the convocation address. Becky Hawbaker, chair of the teacher education faculty, will present the candidates. Michael Licari, associate provost and dean of the graduate college, will grant the candidates admission to the teacher education program. Pinning and affirmation of candidates will be by Becky Hawbaker.
This will be the 43rd group of candidates inducted into the Teacher Education program since formal ceremonies began in 1991. Parents and friends of the candidates are invited to attend along with UNI faculty and administrators. A reception will follow in the GBPAC lobby.
