Institutional Membership New/Renewal

Institutional membership is a GREAT way for your college/university/program to become involved -- PAC-TE is THE Pennsylvania teacher educators' professional association.

Institutional membership dues are based upon the number of teacher education graduates from your program for the most recent academic year. Institutional membership keeps your college/department "in the know" for all things related to teacher preparation as well as providing membership for many faculty in an educator preparation program.

1-75 teacher education grads -- $260 (for 3 faculty members)
76 - 150 teacher education grads -- $320 (for 4 faculty members)
151 - 225 teacher education grads -- $380 (for 5 faculty members)
226 - 300 teacher education grads -- $440 (for 6 faculty members)
300 + teacher education grads -- $500 (for 7 faculty members)

Institutions that are members of AACTE (one of our parent associations), receive one (1) additional PAC-TE institutional membership with their payment.
