strategic initiatives

The North Carolina Association of Colleges of 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. NCACTE is the lead advocacy group for policy issues regarding teacher preparation in North Carolina. We invite you to become engaged in our advocacy initiatives and help us move forward.

advocacy in action

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.


Work with members across your state to make a difference.

NCACTE Proposed Constitutional changes

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.

The NCACTE Executive Board presented the draft changes to the constitution at the 2019 Fall Forum Business meeting on October 1. 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. The changes were unanimously approved by the membership and can be viewed by clicking on the button below.
