Educators Rising Student Organization
As TQI addresses teacher quality, Educators Rising, a student organization sponsored nationally by Phi Delta Kappa, has emerged as an outstanding vehicle for encouraging quality students to explore teaching as a career. TQI has promoted the establishment of Educators Rising Chapters in schools that offer the Teaching and Learning Pathway, as well as other schools throughout the region. Through these chapters, students have the opportunity to gain a realistic understanding of the nature of education and the role of the teacher, as well as gain information about teaching as a profession, employment opportunities, financial assistance options, and educational issues such as professional mobility, diversity, and job security. In addition, TQI sponsors the Murray State Regional Educators Rising Fall Conference. This yearly event gives students an opportunity to attend session about becoming a teacher, compete in a variety of competitions, visit the campus, and learn more about going to college.
