CEC/CEC-PD Mentoring Program

The CEC/CEC-PD Mentoring Program pairs CEC Student members with mentors who are seasoned professionals in Special Education.  The program is designed to provide support and technical assistance during students’ pre-service training (Junior and Senior years), student teaching experiences, graduate studies, and during the time of transition from student to early-career status.
