2020-2023 AACTE Strategic Plan
AACTE began developing a new strategic plan in 2017 when it commissioned an environmental scan, business model review, and market research. In fall 2018, AACTE kicked off the strategic planning process with the first meeting of a Strategic Planning Task Force that included members of the AACTE Board of Directors and National Office staff. The Task Force led an iterative and deliberative process, informed by member input collected through surveys, focus groups, and discussion sessions at the 2019 AACTE Annual Meeting. The AACTE Board of Directors received regular updates on the Task Force’s progress and weighed in with their own perspectives. The Board and Task Force took seriously members’ call for a bold and visionary plan that will enable AACTE to play a leadership role in revolutionizing education for all learners. In September 2019, the Board finalized the full strategic planning framework that consists of new vision and mission statements, core values, and strategic priorities. The National Office Staff will work now to draft operational plans based on that framework over the next several months.
