2017 Washington Week

AACTE's Washington Week is held each June in the nation's capital and features three key events:

  • Day on the Hill – The signature component of Washington Week, Day on the Hill provides AACTE members an opportunity to meet with their representatives as well as the latest information on education policy from Capitol Hill. The event includes training and resources for members to conduct meetings with congressional offices, where they can showcase their successful programs and advocate for relevant legislation or funding.
  • State Leaders Institute – Offered to current leaders of AACTE's state chapters, this program is the forum to discuss important trends in state policies related to educator preparation. Attendees interact with other leaders from across the United States, learning strategies and collaborating to increase their state chapters' capacity and advocate for the profession.
  • Holmes Summer Policy Institute – Created for current AACTE Holmes Students, this experience allows attendees insider experiences in the world of education policy. Students in attendance will learn about the implications of current policy on research and programming that focus on minority populations.
