The North Carolina A&T CAEP Conference sponsored by the School of Education is a collaborative initiative involving accreditation experts, faculty from four-year institutions of higher education, and state-level department of public instruction representatives. The conference is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections throughout the state of North Carolina while assisting four-year institutions of higher education with building capacity among their faculty with respect to the accreditation process.
Organizers of the North Carolina A&T CAEP Conference seek to accomplish the following outcomes:

- Establish an intimate environment for attendees to network with colleagues from the across the nation and state.
- Raise challenging questions and topics relative to the CAEP accreditation process that require further discussion and action.
The North Carolina A&T CAEP Conference is a one-day meeting that features speakers and presenters from the national and state level who have expertise in the accreditation process. Concurrent conference sessions provide attendees with information appropriate to their level of knowledge relative to the accreditation process. Individuals who are new to the accreditation process are encouraged to attend sessions identified as “Tier I.” Individuals with novice expertise with the accreditation process are encouraged to attend sessions identified as “Tier II.” Individuals with extensive knowledge of the accreditation process are encouraged to attend sessions identified as “Tier III.” Although conference planners encourage this approach, all sessions are open to any attendee.
