Student Organizations

There are over 130 student organizations active on campus. The University of Evansville's School of Education provides a great place for students to develop leadership and networking skills through involvement with professional student organizations.


The School of Education has a dynamic ISTA-Aspiring Educators organization. They are part of a statewide group of undergraduate and graduate students at Indiana colleges and universities pursuing education degrees or planning to enter the education profession. ISTA-Aspiring Educators are future educators and leaders of the Indiana State Teachers Association. This organization advocates for education and supports the growth and success of our education students.

Our students participate in the annual statewide Fall Conference and also Outreach to Teach, a project that provides a makeover to a deserving Indiana school. The local chapter also hosts activities at UE for our members.
