AAEE was founded in 1934 as the National Institutional Teacher Placement Association, and was known from 1962 to 1996 as the Association for School, College and University Staffing (ASCUS). Today, as the American Association for Employment in Education, we help ease the day-to-day challenges of matching educational institutions and staff.

Members are career services professionals who work with education candidates and school system human resource administrators. The association is a resource and liaison to these professionals, facilitating quality K-12 staffing.

AAEE provides highly targeted research and publications, professional development, and networking opportunities.
