Work with members across your state to make a difference.

The North Carolina Association of Colleges and Teacher Educators is the organization that unites teacher educators in both public and private colleges and universities, staff and faculty in state created initiatives and consortia, and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

Fall & spring forums

NCACTE sponsors two major conferences each year, the Fall and Spring Teacher Education Forums. These conferences focus on relevant topics in teacher education as they relate to North Carolina and issues pertinent to our goal of ongoing advocacy.

NCACTE is the leading advocacy voice for teacher preparation in North Carolina. Our goal is to unite its members around key issues, collaborate with internal and external constituents, and lead strategic actions to impact P-14 and teacher education.

North Carolina Association for Colleges and Teacher Educators


The NCACTE Executive Board has approved proposed changes to the NCACTE Constitution. These changes will be voted on at the 2019 Fall Forum Business meeting on October 1. The Board invites feedback from membership on the proposed changes. Please note that most of the changes are related to clarification of procedures and processes related to the duties of the Board and its officers. There will also be an opportunity for members to ask questions regarding the changes at the Fall Forum conference prior to the business meeting. Please submit any feedback via the form below by September 15, 2019. 

Membership in NCACTE includes the faculty within private and public institutions and public agencies across North Carolina. Dues are paid by each member institution, and therefore, all faculty who are involved in teacher education are members.
