The Graduate School Alliance of Education in Coaching (GSAEC) is an association of institutional, individual and student members dedicated to strengthening and promoting the discipline and practice of coaching through excellence in graduate-level coach education and research.
Our mission is to define, advance and sustain graduate-level research and education in coaching globally by: establishing standards that shape the discipline of coaching; facilitating research; building a collaborative community of leaders; and championing professional coach education.
GSAEC values the advancement of academic rigor in coaching research and education, the development and promotion of community among its members, the advancement of the integrity of the field of coaching and the continued progression of knowledge creation.
GSAEC membership is open to academic institutions, individuals and students who constitute a community united in the establishment and promotion of a common knowledge base for executive and organization coaching. This includes institutions and individuals who are conducting and disseminating research to expand this knowledge base and defining curricula standards for graduate-level education in coaching.

ACADEMIC STANDARDS FOR GRADUATE-LEVEL EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IN PROFESSIONAL COACHING
These guidelines are intended primarily for graduate academic programs (certificate and/or degree-granting) that emphasize professional coaching as an emerging academic discipline. Graduate academic institutions that are developing and/or offering individual courses in this field may also find the guidelines useful.
