Association of Supervision and Development




Our History

In September 1993, students at Hope College began a student chapter of ASCD, looking for a way to engage in pre-service professional development. Over the next two years, the leadership developed the organization until the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development International accepted the group for official membership. This marked Hope College as the first institution to offer a student chapter, setting the precedent for many other colleges and universities. Enjoying periods of varying activity over the past twenty years, Hope's ASCD chapter offers an average of three professional development workshops per year. Panels, symposiums, and other opportunities have also been offered.
