The Benefits of Institutional Membership in the NC ACE Network

The NC ACE Network is a part of a system of volunteer state networks that started in 1977 under the American Council on Education with funding from the Carnegie Corporation. The purpose of the Networks is to provide professional development to women to prepare for more advanced administrative and leadership positions. Forty-seven networks exist across the country, most of which are state-based. Each state network conducts a wide variety of programs and initiatives in response to the needs of the women in their states, and establishes an organizational structure that best fits the specific needs of the state. Most state networks conduct statewide or regional conferences that provide professional development and networking opportunities for women at all levels of higher education faculty and administration. Collectively, the programming of the state networks across the U.S. reaches approximately 10,000 women each year.
