At UMF, you’ll have an opportunity to become a member of our student chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC), the largest international professional organization dedicated to improving the educational success of individuals with disabilities and/or gifts and talents. CEC advocates for appropriate governmental policies, sets professional standards, provides professional development, advocates for individuals with exceptionalities, and helps professionals obtain conditions and resources necessary for effective professional practice.
Our student chapter meets regularly and organizes various activities that support the mission of CEC. In the past, these have included organizing activities in local schools, helping with Special Olympics, and running fund-raising events.
