Established by the legislature in 1984, the JSU Regional Inservice Center is one of eleven centers in the Alabama Regional Inservice Center (ARIC) network. These centers represent partnerships between higher education and the Alabama State Department of Education (ALSDE) to serve the professional learning needs of Alabama's public schools. State law (Act 87-714) mandates that each in-service center's operational schedule, programming, and budget allocations be subject to the authority and oversight of an independent governing board. The governing board members represent each school system served as well as the center's affiliated higher education institution and the Alabama State Department of Education.
Our mission is to provide high-quality professional learning opportunities and support services to K-12 educators that are relevant, effective, and result in improved student achievement.
