2018 marks 100 years of promoting lifelong learning. Happy 100th anniversary to the College of Education!

“When money is on your mind, that means school isn’t.”

Mathew Oldfield, a chemistry and education major in the undergraduate Double Degree program was drawn in so he could explore his new interest in chemistry and an older passion: teaching. Teaching is something Mathew has always been good at. In middle school, he helped his classmates learn grammar and spelling. In high school, he began taking over as substitute teacher in the band classroom as well. And Mathew Oldfield recognizes the need for financial support.

Aspiring teachers must pay $1200 in order to receive their teaching license, a significant burden on students already struggling with tuition and student debt. By donating to our crowdfunding campaign you can help each student focus more on school, and less on money.
