The IACEHOF honors those scholars, researchers and practitioners who are promoting the value of adult and continuing education in outstanding ways.


To expand our leadership in identifying and honoring excellence in Adult & Continuing Education globally.

This International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame has been created not only to honor leaders in the fields of continuing education and adult learning but to serve as a record and inspiration for the next generation of continuing education leaders.

Election to the Hall of Fame acknowledges that these men and women have made distinguished contributions to the field of adult and continuing education. Each has provided a crucial nexus between resources and learners.

These innovative leaders have believed passionately in the evolutionary power of education. All are themselves exemplary lifelong learners and have left lasting impressions on the students, institutions, and organizations they have served.


The official home for the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame is the University of Oklahoma's Oklahoma Center for Continuing Education (OCCE), in the Thurman J. White Forum Building. The Thurman J. White Forum building is located on the south end of OU’s beautiful and historic campus in Norman, Oklahoma.

First opened in 1962, the Oklahoma Center for Continuing Education (OCCE) is recognized as one of the nation’s leading university-based residential conference centers. OCCE annually serves more than 35,000 individuals who attend conferences, workshops, meetings, and other activities at the center, one of eleven W.K. Kellogg Foundation-funded continuing education centers in the world.

The archives of materials, photos, writings and contributions of the inductees will be maintained at the University of Oklahoma.
