The Department of Educational Leadership’s programs for principal and superintendent preparation are accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

CAEP recognition provides added assurance to students and prospective employers that Miami’s 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.
