The Kansas Association of Colleges and Employers (KACE) has a long and important history in the providing of placement and career development services to students and alumni of Kansas colleges and universities. According to a Kansas Career Development and Placement Association (KCDPA) brochure from 1986, the association began in 1947. While that brochure indicates that the original name was Kansas Teacher Placement Officers, with that name continuing through 1979, many "old timers" believe that the organization for many years was known as the Kansas Association of Teacher Placement Officers (KATPO).

Since then, the organization has evolved through several different names including the Kansas Career Development and Placement Association (KCPDA) and the Kansas Association of Career Services and Employment (KACSE).
