WACTE/OACTE Explore "Creating a Shared Future"  

The American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE) has awarded a grant to the Washington and Oregon state chapters to strengthen our mutual impact in the Pacific Northwest. During the 2012 academic year, the two chapters began identifying diversity recruitment and curricular efforts throughout each state that yielded tangible results. A subsequent request was submitted to AACTE in May, 2012 to expand such work to include Montana and was awarded in June 2012.
