ACTP: A New Name, New Focus,
& New Opportunities!
If you are looking for ATP, you are at the right place! With an clear majority vote from our membership in the summer of 2018, ATP welcomed our academic coaching colleagues into our organization by changing our name from ATP to ACTP. As we begin the first year of our expanded focus, we look forward to additional opportunities to apply our mission and influence.
As you browse our website, you will notice the inclusion of coaching into our mission and vision statement as well as other informative pieces. We will continue to update and expand our website over the next few months, and we will eventually transition from our existing ATP domain to a new ACTP domain.
As existing or potential new members, please feel free to offer suggestions or input along the way. You will find direct contact information for all aspects of ACTP at this About Us/Contact Us link.
