Accreditation | Department of Education

You are here

The Programs in the Department of Education undergo regular reviews from the Board of Teaching (BoT) and Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).  The Board of Teaching reviews ensure that our programs meet the state Standards of Effective Practice and provide prospective teachers with a high level of preparation. Through Council for the Accreditation for Educator Preparation, the Education Department demonstrates further compliance with the rigors of evidence based accreditation. The combination of state (BoT) and national (CAEP) recognition serves as confirmation of an ongoing commitment to quality preparation of our graduates. Further information about these review processes and agencies are linked below.

In addition to accreditation, the Department of Education provides annual data on its teacher education completers.  Information regarding program completion rates may be found on the link entitled "Title II Report."
