School of Education & Social Sciences - Advisory Committee School of Education & Social Sciences - Advisory Committee
A resource for faculty and students in teacher education is the advisory board, which consists of education alumni, teachers, and administrators from schools where our graduates are employed. These professionals provide advice and input on matters pertaining to the education profession which are helpful to the department in keeping the curriculum current and in keeping our program requirements challenging yet practical. Thus, it is the primary goal of the board to help keep Robert Morris at the cutting edge of teacher education offerings in the area.
The School of Education and Social Sciences faculty is comprised of caring individuals who accept the responsibility for educating the "whole" student at RMU. Consequently, our faculty members are specialists in their areas of expertise who effectively implement sound instructional practices when teaching and just as importantly, they engage students in a variety of purposeful enrichment activities outside the classroom setting. One hundred percent of SESS full-time faculty hold a doctorate degree in their field and have strong backgrounds as teachers, researchers, counselors, psychologists, principals, superintendents, and authors. Students learn from them first-hand what it takes to succeed.
Scholarships are available based upon academic achievement.
For freshmen, high school grade point average and ACT/SAT scores are used. For transfer students, the cumulative grade point average of all college courses is used. Scholarships range from $1000 per year up to full tuition. (To calculate your scholarship eligibility, click here.)
