The ASCD Student Chapter program is designed to accelerate preservice educators and student teachers' professional development and their self-identification as education professionals and leaders.
ASCD is committed to improving teacher education and teacher quality. By meaningfully engaging student teachers with ASCD resources and involving them with members of the ASCD community, future educators and leaders gain an edge that energizes and raises their professional performance level.
Together with their class work, membership in an ASCD student chapter helps preservice educators and student teachers begin to learn how and where they might fit into their chosen profession. Membership establishes the link between the classroom and their first jobs as they transition into a career in education.
Student chapters will receive opportunities to experience the ASCD Leader to Leader Conference, ASCD Annual Conference, and regional events hosted by ASCD affiliates to meet education professionals, participate in professional development programs, and develop contacts for internships and future career opportunities.
Chapters may form on the campuses of community colleges, colleges, and universities with accredited education programs.
