The Education Club strives to generate energy, passion, appreciation and focus around the education industry by presenting career pathways for business students interested in education, raising awareness of education issues among future business leaders and promoting mutually beneficial opportunities with the Curry School of Education, Albemarle/Charlottesville education organizations and the Darden/Curry Partnership for Leadership in Education (PLE).
Although this organization has members who are University of Virginia students and may have University employees associated or engaged in its activities and affairs, the organization is not a part of or an agency of the University. It is a separate and independent organization which is responsible for and manages its own activities and affairs. The University does not direct, supervise or control the organization and is not responsible for the organization’s contracts, acts or omissions.
