Education Alumni are represented by the Education Alumni Association (EAA). The EAA provides alumni (and the education community at large) opportunities to gather and learn together at Education Homecoming each year.
The EAA also provides teacher awards and teacher candidate scholarships in order to support current & future teachers.
All Education Alumni are welcome to attend the meetings and we welcome new executive members.
The Faculty of Education and the Education Alumni Association invite you to share your humorous and inspiring experiences from the classroom. Story submissions may be posted on the Faculty of Education section of UM Today.
We hope that your stories will inspire, empower, or provide new teachers with a smile to carry with them as they begin their careers. Therefore, we are interested in helping you share the stories that make you laugh, however, we are also interested in the stories that inspired you, or perhaps still remain meaningful to you as a teacher.
Review the guidelines for story submission. All submissions will be reviewed.

Annually, the EAA hosts Education Homecoming the same week the U of M's annual homecoming events take place in September.
Education Homecoming is open to the Education Community at large and is a great way to network and meet Faculty of Education faculty members.

EAA Sponsored Awards & Student Scholarships
The EAA recognizes the important work of students, educators, and administrators who have demonstrated excellence, creativity and initiative, and a positive commitment to the field of education. See each of the awards below for details and to nominate a deserving educator or educational administrator in your school or division.
University of Manitoba alumni and current students can access a free online resource to help them find and prepare for employment anywhere in the world. MyWorldAbroad has an entire section dedicated to the teaching profession, still one of the most portable fields and one of the biggest areas of overseas employment.
For teachers, a section of the guide offers testimonials from teachers who have taught around the globe and strategies for different levels of teaching experience. It also provides information on the job search, application, and hiring processes. In addition, alumni will find guidance on resume writing, the job contract, and direction on how to move for the new job. This guide also provides information on how to move your family to a new country, how to select schools for your children, and a whole lot more.
