AACTE History

In February 1948, AACTE held its founding meeting in Atlantic City, NJ, and adopted its constitution and bylaws. Over the course of its first three-quarters of a century, the Association experienced “The Start of Something Big” and through the decades, it reshaped teacher preparation, became a driving influence in the field, navigated turbulence and shifts in the landscape, and redefined its organizational purpose with a mission to revolutionize education. View the digital timeline, documenting the historical milestones of AACTE’s first “75 Years Leading a Profession.”
