The AATE is excited to announce we are in process of putting together programming for the 2021 AATE Colloquium: Building Thriving Programs, to be held virtually on July 20 & 21, 2021!

This dynamic learning event will include topics on faculty development, supporting tenure-track and clinical faculty, faculty practice models, contemporary expertise, marketing and recruitment, admissions, post-pandemic innovations (instructional technology and pedagogy), and programmatic assessment.

Sadly, we have watched the spike in violence and continued harassment of the Asian, Asian American, and Pacific Islander (APPI) community. We are also watching anti-transgender legislation increase. This violence and legislation directly affect our learners, patients, institutional members, friends, and family. Please look for more to come from the AATE to assist institutional members through educational initiatives to celebrate diversity, equity, and inclusion.


Our mission is to provide a community that serves as a responsive and progressive voice to advance the athletic training profession through education.
