History of ACTLA
The Association of Colleges for Tutoring and Learning Assistance (ACTLA) was organized in 1973 with the purpose of improving tutorial programs and services in California Community Colleges. The first conference was held at Allan Hancock College in Santa Maria on May 2, 1974. Through 1983 the organization was called the California Community College Tutorial Association (CCCTA). Beginning in 1984, with the intention of including all institutions of higher education in California, the name changed to the Association of California Colleges for Tutoring and Learning Assistance (ACCTLA). In the summer of 2002 a strategic planning committee of the executive board approved a final name change to the Association of Colleges for Tutoring and Learning Assistance (ACTLA). More than 30 years after its inception ACTLA is now a national organization but retains its original purpose: improving tutorial programs and related services
ACTLA is pleased to be a member of the council of learning assistance and developmental education associations.
