A Landmark Collaboration

ACUE and the American Council on Education (ACE) launched a significant collaboration to enhance student success through effective college instruction.

ACE has endorsed ACUE's Effective Practice Framework as a leading statement of the instructional skills and knowledge that college educators should possess. ACE is endorsing ACUE's Certificate in Effective College Instruction and encouraging its members to offer ACUE's Course in Effective Teaching Practices to their faculty.

“This important collaboration advances ACE’s historic commitment to expanding access to postsecondary education and helping our institutions build the capacity to ensure that those students can succeed,” said ACE President Molly Corbett Broad. “We are proud to join with ACUE in this initiative to provide critical tools and resources to instructors and institutions.”
