We are creating a national community of teaching artists with diverse backgrounds and common goals to fight for integrity and raise standards across our field.

Our membership currently spans 30 states and more than 80 actor training programs. Our members teach in a wide array of actor training programs—ranging from some of the country’s leading conservatory programs to small liberal arts schools—including MFA, BFA, BA programs, public and private universities, community colleges, private acting studios, and high schools.
