Student Organizations in Teacher Education

Epsilon Delta Upsilon (EDU)

Epsilon Delta Upsilon (EDU) is the Teacher Education and HSS co-ed professional fraternity on campus. As an organization, we specifically focus on professional development in the fields of education and health and sports sciences by promoting our three pillars: unity, service, and professionalism.  Not only do we focus on professional development, but we also hold many bonding events so members can get to know each other.  Many members would say that their favorite part about EDU is the close friendships they have made. Recruitment for the fall semester is open to sophomores and juniors only.  Freshmen and sophomores are allowed to participate in spring recruitment.  EDU meets every other week in Fitz Hall.  If you have questions, please email
