ACUE’s mission is to ensure student success and equity through quality instruction.
We believe that every faculty member deserves the support and preparation needed to teach well, so that every student receives an extraordinary education.
In partnership with institutions of higher education, ACUE prepares, credentials, and provides on-going support to faculty in the use of evidence-based teaching practices that promote student engagement, persistence to graduation, career readiness, and deeper levels of learning. Faculty who satisfy the requirements of ACUE’s courses through institutional partnerships or open enrollment courses earn certificates in effective college instruction endorsed by the American Council on Education. Through ACUE’s Community of Professional Practice, ACUE’s members enjoy ongoing support to refine their teaching, stay current on research, and advance the national conversation. Through efficacy studies with partner colleges and universities nationwide, we’re demonstrating that our faculty members can make the greatest difference.
