Professional Development and Mentoring

As a member of the CES program all students are expected to submit at least one conference proposal at the state, regional or national level. Students may present alone, in teams with their peers or with faculty. Additionally, students are expected to attend regional, state or national conference as well write for publication prior to completion of their doctoral program. CES and APCE faculty are committed to robust mentoring relationships between and among students and faculty. Mentoring relationships, while informally constructed are a critical part of students programs.
