• Teacher Education

    AASCU institutions award approximately 65 percent of public, four-year bachelor's degrees in education each year. Accordingly, teacher preparation has been and remains a top priority for AASCU and its members. AASCU supports member institutions in their efforts to offer high quality teacher education programs by working with partner organizations on a variety of policy-related issues, recognizing exemplary teacher education programs, and serving as a valuable resource for administrators and faculty members. We invite you to learn more about our work by following the links below.
