UCI offers an on-campus theme house for students who are interested in exploring education issues and careers. Residents participate in program activities with university faculty and K-12 educators to enhance their knowledge about education and teaching in elementary, secondary, and higher education settings. They enjoy a supportive living and learning community with peers who share similar interests. The theme house is jointly sponsored by the UCI Department of Education and the Center for Educational Partnerships.
