Special Education Student Groups

Special Education Student Ambassadors

Special Education (SPED) Ambassadors are current students and alumni who have been selected to represent the Special Education program in various settings, such as welcome events for new students, orientations, presentations to groups on and off campus, information fairs and recruitment events.

Applications for the SPED Ambassadors program are accepted each February. Successful candidates are energetic, articulate and committed special education teacher candidates who are interested in being involved in shaping the Special Education program and developing their leadership skills.

If you have general questions about the special education teacher certification program, please visit the Teacher Education Department Office in Room 145 of the Carr Education-Fine Arts Building or call (325) 942-2052. You may also e-mail Dr. Charlene Bustos, program advisor, at Charlene.Bustos@angelo.edu.

Angelo State University CEC Student Chapter

ASU students who are majoring or have an interest in special education have started a student chapter of the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC). The CEC is the largest international, non-profit organization that provides support and information for children with disabilities, their families and the people who work with them.

ASU’s student chapter of CEC is open to all majors. To become an official member, please attend one of our meetings and pay $10 in membership dues.

If you want to get even more involved, you can also join the CEC national organization. Through the national CEC, you can receive all the same benefits as a professional for the student rate of $69. When filling out the online membership application, be sure to select a chapter by zip code.

CEC activities are great ways to earn professional points for the courses that require them. Consider being a part of CEC and its activities. It is a wonderful way to touch a life and to change your own.

Visit the National CEC website.
