The Education Support Center is relocating to the Annex building located at 725 South Mason Street due to the fire alarm upgrade/construction scheduled for this summer at Memorial Hall.  We will move to the Annex on April 28th and return to Memorial Hall as soon as the work is completed.  We will be open for business in Memorial Hall on Friday April 25, closed on Monday, April 28th (Moving Date) and reopen at the Annex on Tuesday, April 29th.  

You will be able to use our current mailing address and phone and fax numbers but starting on Tuesday April 29th you will need to come to the ANNEX to meet with us or drop off information!

The mission of the Education Support Center is to monitor admission to, and retention in, initial licensure programs; coordinate professional experiences; process documents for licensure; provide leadership to partnerships with institutions and school divisions; and, serve as a resource for information about professional education programs at James Madison University.
