ASCD has been learning, teaching, and leading beyond boundaries since 1943, when we began as an influential education organization built for educators, by educators. We have tackled controversial issues and policies, established ourselves as an educational thought leader, and expanded our professional development expertise worldwide. As technology evolved, we harnessed new tools to advance best practices. Today, our advocacy efforts and initiatives reflect ASCD's enduring commitment to bring quality education to all children and promote the success of each learner, as we engage diverse educators, develop professional development resources, and promote whole child education.
ASCD's Core Values
- Courageous: We are bold and unafraid to share new and non-traditional ideas; strong enough to debate professionally for or against a position we are passion about; and brave enough to hold one another accountable to our focus on priorities, commitments, excellence and the mission.
- Creative: We think and act creatively, focused on relevance, with a collaborative spirit that moves us beyond organizational boundaries and thinking, leading us to transformative ideas and solutions.
- Civil: We appreciate differences in people and thoughts, and demonstrate integrity, decency, humanity, honesty, and good faith in all our interactions with colleagues, partners, and customers.
