ACCT Statement on the Appointment of Ted Mitchell, New ACE President

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Today, the American Council on Education (ACE) announced the appointment of Ted Mitchell as its new president.

This appointment could not be more timely. Ted brings a wealth of experience and policy acumen to this position. While he served as U.S. Under Secretary of Education, Ted was always responsive and thoughtful, genuinely sensitive to the needs of community colleges and our students, and to the sector’s desire to be more fully integrated into the Washington policymaking community.

All of us at ACCT greatly look forward to Ted’s leadership of ACE, and to his continued support of community colleges and our students.

J. Noah Brown

ACCT President and CEO
