College of Education Alumni Association (COEAA)

The College of Education Alumni Association (COEAA) was established in the 1980s by a group of public school administrators who saw the need to support the efforts of the UH College of Education. Today, COEAA's leadership is made up of a cross section of educators from various perspectives of the education arena. We have a lot to share and would love to hear from you!
