Council for Exceptional Children Student Chapter

Liberty University Chapter

The Student Chapter of CEC at Liberty was formed early in Spring 2005, and membership is open to all majors and is required for all special education majors. There are many benefits to joining the national chapter of CEC

CEC is now approved for CSER; however, this is only available to those who hold leadership positions within the CEC Student Chapter. If you are interested in leadership, please email the Student Chapter of CEC at cec@liberty.edu. CEC activities are also great ways to earn professional points for those courses that require them and as approved by course instructors. Consider being a part of CEC today. This is a great way to touch a life and to change your own.

Chapter Highlight: iKids 

In January 2006, Liberty University and Thomas Road Baptist Church joined resources to form a Special Education Ministry for families who have children with special needs. This ministry has been in the making for years. It is an answer to the prayers of many people. Liberty University students are paired with a child at Thomas Road Baptist Church on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. This has been a fun and rewarding experience for all of those involved.
