    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.

    • Christa McAuliffe Award: The Christa McAuliffe Excellence in Teacher Education Award honors exemplary teacher education programs at AASCU institutions.

    • Task Force on Teacher Education: AASCU’s 2016 Task Force on Teacher Education assessed the state of teacher education at member institutions, identified pockets of innovation and success in the field, and highlighted the vital role of presidents and provosts in strengthening and supporting the effectiveness of their programs for an increasingly diverse P-12 student body. A report, drawing on task force members' insights and results from a survey of AASCU presidents, provosts and education deans, is available online.
