Student North Carolina Association of Education

Are you interested in becoming an educator?

If so, UNC Charlotte’s chapter of the Student North Carolina Association of Education (SNCAE) is the organization on campus for you!

SNCAE is one of the best pre-professional groups on campus to help you prepare for your future as an educator. Our core values are teacher quality, community engagement, and political advocacy. One thing that makes us unique is that we are connected with the North Carolina Association of Educators (NCAE) and the National Education Association (NEA), leading professional organizations for educators both here in North Carolina and across the United States. Our links to these organizations provide UNC Charlotte teacher candidates access to quality professional development opportunities along with the opportunity to network with former and current teachers, administrators, and superintendents in our local area as well as within the state.


  • You’ll find peers on campus who are interested in becoming educational leaders and advocates for education.
  • You’ll have access to local, regional, or statewide professional development opportunities almost every month.
  • You’ll receive $1,000,000 in liability insurance protection any time you are working with school children as part of your teacher preparation program.
  • You’ll find information about scholarship opportunities.
  • You’ll earn discounts on magazines, credit cards, theme parks, car rentals, hotels, and more!

Dues are only $33 per year, and as a first-year teacher, members receive a $20 rebate from NEA and a $10 rebate from NCAE for every year they were a student member.
