Bear Partnership goals:

  • Expose students to careers in education
  • Prepare students academically and socially for college life

Students activities:

  • Participate in ACT prep classes each day
  • Attend mini-workshops on fraternity and sorority life, financial aid, and campus job opportunities
  • Explore the Springfield area by attending a Springfield Cardinals game, going to Lambert's Cafe, and other events

As a potential Bear Partnership participant, we hope you give us an opportunity to show you why we believe we are the best university and College of Education in the state of Missouri!
