Coronavirus Impact on AACTE Events
At AACTE, we continue to monitor the continuously changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. We understand that concerns for health, safety, and the impact on meeting attendance, among other issues, are affecting our members.
We are committed to maintaining all appropriate sanitary, health, and safety measures and encourage attendees to follow guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization. If there are any changes to event schedules, we will provide information to registrants about the new meeting dates and/or other specific details.
Please note that due to the ongoing uncertainty regarding the coronavirus, AACTE will not charge a cancellation fee if you decide to not attend an in-person event based on concerns around your health or travel.
The Leadership Academy is held each year for new and aspiring deans, department chairs, directors of educator preparation programs, and other academic administrators in schools, colleges, and departments of education.

The 2022 Leadership Academy will take place June 26 – 30, at the Renaissance Tampa International Plaza Hotel in Tampa, FL.
