History and Current Mission of the NAEA Preservice Division
As the newest Division, NAEA Preservice is growing and thriving. Representing and supporting all college students in Art Education and related fields, undergraduate and graduate, the Preservice Division works to foster the next face of Art Education in our nation.
We owe it all to the support of the NAEA as a whole, and the visionary leadership of our Student Chapter Presidents. Key members of the Student Chapter Issues Group put forth a request to the Board for consideration to become a full-fledged seat at the table. After careful study, the Board recommended action by the 2013 Delegates Assembly. Once presented the recommendation to the 2013 Assembly; registered delegates voted unanimously to recommend the establishment of a new Preservice Division to the membership for their consideration and vote. Members voted yes on the proposed new Preservice Division and related amendment to the NAEA Constitution.
The Preservice Division leadership structure has since transitioned to align with the NAEA Division structures, now consisting of a Division Director and Regional Division Directors. Representing 11% of the total NAEA membership, we are a dedicated and engaged voice in the field. We now have a wide array of leadership roles available for full-time Art Education and related field college students.
There is always room for more connections and contacts within this growing Division. Please join, follow, and friend the Preservice Division on our various social media platforms. Also, connect with our leadership directly via phone or e-mail. Share what is working with your Student Chapter, and look to other Student Chapters for support and ideas.
