Teachers in Today’s Challenging Context: Key Issues, Policy Directions and Implications for Leaders of AASCU Universities

AASCU Task Force on Teacher Education

Teacher preparation is at the core of most public universities’ missions, providing a vital
function in pursuit of states’ ambitions for an educated and engaged populace.

AASCU’s 2016 Task Force on Teacher Education assessed the state of teacher education at member institutions, identified pockets of innovation and success in the field, and highlighted the vital role of presidents and provosts in strengthening and supporting the effectiveness of their programs for an increasingly diverse P-12 student body.

The report drew on task force members’ insights and results from a survey of AASCU presidents, provosts and education deans.
