Student Council for Exceptional Children

The Student Council for Exceptional Children is an international organization designed to improve education and set the standards for educating individuals with exceptionalities, including those who are gifted and students with various disabilities. Missouri State University has a campus chapter with both student and faculty members. Throughout the academic year, we participate in many campus activities, as well as state and national SCEC events. We are committed to the development of leaders within the field of special education, as evidenced by regularly sending student members to the state and national conventions and our success in having student members elected to state office.
