Accreditation

The College of Education, Health and Society seeks accreditation from a variety of external organizations because such recognition provides added assurance to students and prospective employers that our degree programs meet the highest professional standards.

The accreditation process typically involves an extensive self-study, followed by an on-site visit by nationally known professionals, and then a decision by the accrediting body as to whether accreditation should be granted.

Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) accreditation demonstrates that the performance of our teacher candidates has been thoroughly assessed before they are recommended for licensure and that our professional programs meet national standards.

The two national accrediting bodies, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), merged to become CAEP on July 1, 2013.
