Teacher Education Opportunities and Involvement

There are many ways to enhance your education outside the classroom. From doing research to connecting with someone with developmental disabilities, these experiences will help you grow as you learn.


Undergraduate Research - The smaller class sizes and personal attention you will enjoy at Simpson provide a unique opportunity for you to work on research projects, independently or in collaboration with a faculty member. Once your project has been completed, there are many opportunities to present your findings at conferences throughout the state and across the country. On campus, the annual Research and Creativity Symposium showcases the scholarly works produced by Simpson students.


Education Club - A group made up of fellow education students provides you with professional development opportunities and gives back to local schools and kids.


Best Buddies - This group provides you with the opportunity to create one-to-one friendships, integrated employment and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.


Tutoring - Simpson's Center for Academic Resources provides an opportunity for you to become a peer tutor for Simpson students seeking academic support.


Stormathon - Simpson's version of Dance Marathon gives you the chance to lead or take part in an event that raises money for Children's Miracle Network's more than 170 pediatric hospitals across the country.


International Student Teaching - If you qualify, you may be able to complete part of your student teaching in one of 18 countries around the world.
