ACTE has created a network of members willing to commit time and expertise to respond to media inquires. On occasion, we will be calling upon people in the network to initiate contacts with the media in their area to bring to light issues of importance to the profession and the Association.
The network has helped secured stories in Chicago Tribune, Los Angles Times, MSN.com, MSNBC, The Chronicle of Higher Education, Inside Higher Education and Community College Week.
If you are interested in joining or to learn more about the network, please contact Media Relations Manager Sean Lynch.

What We Do
