Agricultural Education Division

The ACTE® Agricultural Education Division's membership base includes agriculture teachers (elementary, secondary, postsecondary, adult), state agricultural education leaders and university agricultural educators. Originating with the Smith-Hughes Act of 1917, this Division's mission is to prepare students for successful careers and a lifetime of choices in the global agriculture and natural resources systems.


The national goals of the Division are:

  • all students achieve conversational literacy of agriculture and national resources
