Why Support ACE?

​​​​​The American Council on Education (ACE) is the major coordinating body for the nation’s colleges and universities. With your support, ACE is expanding innovation, diversity, and inclusion in U.S. higher education. By advancing a strong public policy agenda, professional learning programs, research, internationalization, and evaluation of learning by nontraditional providers, ACE seeks to strengthen and diversify the leadership pipeline and to ensure student success.

A Legacy of Leadership

Founded in 1918 to mobilize higher education to assist the nation during World War I, ACE has touched millions of higher education leaders. The Council leads efforts to raise national awareness of the importance of greater diversity within higher education. Today, many diverse leaders credit their professional growth to their ACE training.

ACE champions the success of students at all stages of postsecondary education. The Council’s learning evaluation programs quality assure courses, exams, apprenticeships, and other types of learning for individuals to obtain academic credit toward a credential or degree.

Through our long-standing advocacy and public policy efforts, ACE mobilizes all sectors of U.S. higher education to support affordability, access, student success, and innovation.

Shaping Leadership and Practice

ACE formed the Learning and Engagement Division in 2019 to unite the Council's professional learning, research, internationalization, and learning evaluation offerings under a single umbrella.

As part of this realignment, ACE launched ACE Engage®, a robust, peer-to-peer online professional learning platform, coupled with Transformation Labs, Regional Summits focused on topics of interest to leaders, and other resources.

Together with stakeholders in higher education, philanthropy, and other sectors, ACE is working to strengthen and diversify senior leadership, enhance learning networks, expand postsecondary education pathways, and close disparities in completion for students.
