ACSR Governance

AACTE has a relationship with 41 state associations of colleges for teacher education. The presidents from these state AACTE affiliate organizations comprise the Advisory Council of State Representatives (ACSR), which operates as the governing body of the affiliates. The primary purpose of ACSR is to serve as a collaborative network for state association leaders across the nation and to represent state-level perspectives in AACTE activities as well as help identify important issues for AACTE to monitor and manage. 

ACSR elects an Executive Committee which convenes the state associations and manages programming to develop state association organizational capacity and policy advocacy. The chair, chair-elect, and past chair of ACSR serve on the AACTE Board of Directors.
