100 Years of Teacher Education at St. Bonaventure
Partnering with the School of Education



Did you know that you are a part of SBU history?  You are one of the many educators — teachers, leaders, counselors and allied professionals — who has journeyed with SBU professors and peers.  You are one of us and we are so very proud of the mark you are making in schools and agencies.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of teacher education at St. Bonaventure University. Our programs are innovative. Our students are passionate. Our graduates are extraordinary educators. Principals from across the country call us every year begging for Bona graduates whom they can entice to take jobs in their districts.

Teacher education is more important than ever. The federal government is projecting that the U.S. will need 430,000 new teachers by 2020SBU can and will prepare many of those new teachers.

Your help is needed … to spread the word about our innovative programs … and to support the School of Education with a philanthropic gift in honor of our centennial.  Celebrate your achievements.  Help us celebrate the achievements of today’s SBU students.

Can we count on your partnership? I’m hoping so.
