Collegiate Middle Level Association (CMLA)
CMLA is a national student organization for teacher candidates who dream of “working in the middle.” Most of our Middle Level candidates become active participants in CMLA. They enjoy professional and social activities to extend their learning experiences. One of the best experiences CMLA encourages is to get candidates to attend the national and state middle level conferences. Over the years CMLA candidates have traveled to Baltimore, Louisville, Atlanta, Denver, Nashville, Portland, St. Louis and more.
