CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa College of Education recently hosted its bi-annual Teacher Education Convocation, inducting more than 300 students into the College of Education.

'One of the most rewarding aspects of this event is looking out into the audience and seeing the pride on the faces of parents and grandparents,' said Oakland. 'It is an especially moving ceremony that celebrates not only the College of Education, but the accomplishments of the entire university.'
