Student Organizations

For those who love to teach and learn

Quinnipiac Future Teachers Organization (QFTO) is a student organization geared towards students who share an interest in teaching and wish to pursue a career in education. QFTO's members explore different aspects of the teaching profession through discussion, events, attending conferences and leading service projects in schools throughout Connecticut. 

Our mission is to mold educators who embrace lifelong learning and understand that theirs is a major daily contribution to communities across the nation. We encourage our students to be active in academic clubs and honor societies dedicated to enrichment and high achievement in the very subjects they will one day be teaching, from history and foreign languages to the natural sciences. They also have the opportunity to join such efforts as the Community Action Project, which allows them to bring the spirit of service to the very populations they may one day be teaching.
