Partnerships Designed to Ensure Your Faculty Maximize their ACUE Experience
ACUE Certified faculty have the power and knowledge to open doors of opportunity for each student they teach. That means that all aspects of a faculty member’s interactions with learners—from course design, to the way impact is measured—deserve the utmost consideration. We have built into our offerings an understanding of the full student and academic lifecycle and how institutions can accelerate their student success and equity goals.
Our Partnership Design Process
We partner with institutional leaders, student success teams, teaching center staff, and faculty to identify the student success goals and priorities that matter most to them. Through these conversations we identify areas of opportunity to influence faculty teaching practices, determining how best to implement ACUE’s suite of online courses across an institution and measure the impact on students.
The result? A relentless and shared commitment to the success of faculty, students, and entire institutions.
At Miami Dade College, a study by the Center for Research and Reform in Education (CRRE) at Johns Hopkins University confirmed stronger engagement among students taught by ACUE-credentialed faculty. GPAs improved by 0.19 to above 3.0, across 100 courses taught by ACUE-credentialed faculty, enrolling 6,100 students.
“Because of the ACUE course, when I walk into the ACUE classroom I feel more confident, more prepared. I know exactly the goals that I want to reach for that day.”

At Rutgers University Newark, students taught by ACUE-credentialed instructors had significantly higher completion rates and grades compared to students who were taught by comparison instructors.
“We are able to — through the ACUE content — introduce our faculty to expert researchers in the field, and also to get them a chance to engage with real-time, live classroom content from other folks around the country.”

Every institution has a unique story. ACUE partnership is a shared guarantee that no matter what attributes define your mission, it will be elevated by excellent teaching.
