College of Education Dean Dr. Paula Summers Calderon has been selected to serve a two-year term as President of Louisiana Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (LACTE).
LACTE is the state-level affiliate of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) and represents the 20 institutions of higher education that prepare educators within Louisiana.
State chapters provide a vehicle for teacher educators to take a unified position on state-specific issues and to meet as partners with stakeholders such as state departments of education, teachers’ organizations, and the Board of Regents. Chapters can also provide networking, service, and research opportunities.
The presidents from state chapters are members of AACTE’s Advisory Council of State Representatives (ACSR). The primary purpose of ACSR is to serve as a collaborative network for chapter leaders across the states and to bring state-level perspectives to all AACTE activities.
