ASU Theatre & Dance hosts several student organizations that encourage community, participation, resume building, and professional development.
ACTT - Appalachian Consortium of Theatre Teachers
This group serves as a communication/support arena for pre-service theatre teachers, and those interested in using theatre as a teaching tool. We broach topics of interest in the K-12 theatre classroom, as well as concerns about advising, lesson planning, student teaching, and more.
