Alumni Engagement

A teacher stands in the middle of a classroom of students.

At the VCU School of Education, we take an interactive approach to engaging with our alumni. This means we not only want to share what we're all about, we also want to find out what you're all about. When we do this, we contribute to a spirit of community among current and future alumni, while also strengthening our School and the VCU community.

Share Your Why

Your story inspires. We want to create a movement starting with your "Why" story. Why did you choose this field? Why do you commit yourself to your craft every day? Why do you care about your work? Why do you keep learning, creating, improving? What inspires you every day? Inspire future educators. You can be the change.  Help us share your story. We want to hear from you!
