AACTE state chapter associations serve as the state-level affiliates of AACTE and represent the institutions of higher education that prepare educators within the state. Chapters provide a vehicle for teacher educators to take a unified position on state-specific issues and to meet as partners or as responsible adversaries with the state departments, teachers' organizations, and other stakeholder groups. Chapters can also provide networking, service, and professional learning opportunities for teacher educators across the state.
The presidents or liaison representatives from these chapters are members of AACTE's Advisory Council of State Representatives (ACSR). The primary purpose of ACSR is to serve as a collaborative network for chapter leaders across the states and to bring state-level perspectives to all AACTE activities.

AACTE Award Grants to 5 State Chapters
Each year, AACTE and the Advisory Council of State Representatives (ACSR) Executive Committee select recipients of the State Chapter Support Grants to help strengthen the capacity of the chapters on various levels, including advocacy and statewide collaboration to meet key challenges, as well as strengthen AACTE’s relationship with state chapters.
For the 2018-2019 academic year, five chapters – in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Iowa, and New Jersey – received funding. Be sure to attend the State Leaders Institute during AACTE’s Washington Week in early June 2019 to learn of the work of these chapters. Read the article in Ed Prep Matters announcing these awards.
