Future Educators Association (FEA)
A joint venture with local public schools, Montclair State's Future Educators Association Chapter works with Montclair State University Network for Educational Renewal school districts to identify and encourage academically promising students to consider a career in education. MSU/FEA is affiliated with the national Future Educators Association organization, c/o Phi Delta Kappa International (see http://www.futureeducators.org)
Montclair State sponsors annual on-campus events for middle and high school students and their teachers and helps students gain a realistic understanding of the nature of education and the role of the teacher. Beginning in grade six, future educators participate in a variety of assisting activities with teacher mentors in their classrooms. MSU's Future Educators Association chapter strives to interest students in the field of education early in their school experience and places a strong emphasis on the recruitment of students from diverse ethnic, racial, social and economic backgrounds.
