Society of Alumni & Friends
Welcome to the Ohio University Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education Society of Alumni & Friends (SAF). As a society we are committed to promoting the general welfare of The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education in order to achieve the goals of The Patton College and to promote and facilitate the active involvement of alumni and friends of The Patton College. All alumni of The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education as well as University alumni with a vested interest in education can be members.
SAF serves The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education in promoting the lifelong learning of rising educators. We work hard to create and host several conferences a year designed to bring College faculty and administrators, area educators and students together outside of the classroom. These conferences allow students to gain valuable knowledge from several sources, which strengthens and develops their skills as future educators. In addition, SAF hosts alumni socials that allow alumni to network and share ideas concerning the future of education.
Each SAF member serves on a primary committee. The SAF committees are Executive-Nominations, Alumni-Faculty Relations, Recognition and Awards, and Alumni-Student Relations.
Executive Nominations Committee
This Committee exists to maintain the SAF board society. They are continually looking for new SAF board members who have a vested interest in education. All other committees also report to this committee.
Alumni-Faculty Relations Committee
This Committee identifies and promotes the Society’s interaction and support of The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education faculty and alumni.
Recognition and Awards Committee
This Committee makes connections with alumni and serves to honor and promote their successes in the field.
Alumni-Student Relations Committee
This Committee works with The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education to recruit and retain students and identify the means for alumni to join in this effort. Their main emphasis is the annual Robert P. Comer Education Conference.
