Each April the Education Department welcomes local cooperating teachers and student teachers to campus to celebrate the impact that teachers make each day on students’ lives.

Buddy Day

Each fall students in Cultural Diversity pair up with students at a largely Latino elementary school to build relationships, listen to one another’s stories, and ultimately to write up the stories in a class book. The local students are invited to campus for a Buddy Day.

Let's Talk Teaching

Each year the Westmont student teachers promote the teaching profession by connecting with local high school students. The student teachers alternate years by visiting a local high school education academy or inviting high school students to campus for a "Let's Talk Teaching" conference.
