Important and exciting new developments are underway at AACTE as the association works to support the mission and strategic goals of the association, including advocating for high-quality educator preparation; promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion; and advancing educator preparation policy, practice, and research. The ACSR Executive Committee and the staff of the AACTE national office look forward to working with the new ACSR elected officials to shape and implement these new developments.
