NCATE College of Education Institutional Report

The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is a non-profit, non-governmental alliance that ensures the high quality preparation of educational professionals in Schools, Colleges, and departments of Education.  NCATE uses a performance-based accreditation system that requires institutions to provide evidence of candidate performance and impact on P-12 student learning. Candidates in teacher education programs and other school service programs (e.g., counseling, reading specialists, principals, social workers) must illustrate knowledge of their discipline-specific subject matter and must demonstrate their ability to engage all students in the learning process.

This website shares the College of Education’s Institutional Report with the university and broader community. This report illustrates candidate, faculty, and alumni performance outcomes between the 2011-12 and 2014-15 academic years. We invite you to read the report and examine our performance during this time period.  We will update this website periodically with various documents and material as we prepare for our onsite NCATE accreditation visit from Sunday, April 26th, 2015 to Tuesday, April 28th, 2015.

After reviewing the Institutional Report, we invite you to submit third party comments to the visiting team. Please click the “Third Party Testimony Notification” link to learn more about this process.
