75 Years of Excellence in Learning, Teaching, and Leading

From educator preparation to retirement, ASCD is dedicated to excellence in learning, teaching, and leading so that every child is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

From the first day of a teacher preparation program to the last day on the job, ASCD supports educators regardless of their years of service, positions, or titles. We’re committed to helping educators enhance their crafts and enhance their roles by providing high-quality, research-based resources and support they can trust.

Comprising 114,000 members—superintendents, principals, teachers, and advocates from more than 127 countries—the ASCD community also includes 57 affiliate organizations.

Our diverse, nonpartisan membership is our greatest strength, projecting a powerful, unified voice to decision makers around the world.

Our Vision

The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development, doing business as ASCD, strives to expand our influence as an international organization that is widely recognized for helping educators define, support, and engages in the development of highly effective learning systems.

Educators everywhere have a vision to change the world–one child at a time. It’s our vision, too. Supporting the whole child is at the core of our mission and everything we do at ASCD. Five areas of focus guide our mission and help support educators to ensure that each student is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged.

75 Years of Leadership in Education

For 75 years, ASCD has been at the forefront of education issues that affect learning, teaching, and leading. Since the launch of Educational Leadership magazine in 1943, ASCD has developed trustworthy, researched-based, and up-to-date information that shapes the international conversation on best practices to support the success of each learner.

Throughout our history, ASCD’s members, authors, and expert cadres have read like a “Who’s Who” in education. ASCD has been the birthplace of transformative ideas such as the Understanding by Design® framework, the ASCD Whole Child approach, and capacity-building professional learning.
