Southeast Missouri State University

The Tomorrow’s Teacher’s Learning Community is open to all freshman education majors. This community is to engage education majors to link general studies and their major immediately. Students will learn about their future profession through course work and interactions with education faculty and advisors. This program integrates first-year students into their education majors to create an environment which ties students to the College of Education and their peers.

Tomorrow’s Teachers learning community is located in LaFerla Hall. Any student who desires to participate in the Community must indicate their preference for this community though their Contract for University Housing assignment process. Once the preferences are received the Office of Residence Life will email supplemental questions to your Southeast email account as part of the selection process. If space is available transfer education students returning Tomorrow’s Teacher residents may live on the same floor to participate in the activities, but typically do not need the courses within the first year community.

Students participating in this community will take selected classes together including UI 100 and a beginning field experience in education. There will also be informal opportunities to interact with faculty and staff through programs and events in the residence hall. Faculty may also hold special study sessions for the entrance exam for teacher education (open to ALL education majors) in the hall and other topics for success in the education curriculum at Southeast. Through these activities students will become better prepared to meet the entrance requirements for the College of Education.

How to Sign Up:

Current students should participate in the Returning Student Room Selection process through the Office of Residence Life.  In addition they must re-apply to the community and fill out the application.

New students should indicate their preference for this community on their Contract for University Housing and return the application that they will receive in the mail once they complete their Contract for University Housing.

There is no extra cost associated with the Community.  If you have any questions, please contact the Office of Residence Life at (573) 651-2274 or
