CAEL Membership


Acacia University is a proud member of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), which was founded in 1974 to help organizations succeed by providing expertise, resources, and solutions that effectively support adult learners as they navigate on-an off-ramp between education and employment.

To complement its pioneering work to support adult learners and learning recognition, in the 1990s, CAEL expanded its mission to include workforce development and the mutually beneficial links between curricula and careers that are so vital to the success of learners and communities they live and work in. Through collaboration with educators, employers, and community leaders, CAEL’s nonprofit mission has become a national movement to ensure that every adult can navigate lifelong learning and career pathways that fuel social mobility and equitable prosperity. Today, CAEL supports adult learner success at more than 300 postsecondary institutions, employers, and government agencies in the U.S. and abroad
