CEHD retains NCATE accreditation

The College of Education and Human Development (CEHD) continues the highest standard of accreditation and has been recognized for exemplary performance in its partnership with local schools by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

"NCATE's accreditation renewal for the university, which extends through 2019, recognizes CEHD's high quality preparation of teacher candidates and other school professionals," said CEHD Dean Jean Quam.

"This recognition means a great deal to us and to our teacher candidates," she said. "We voluntarily pursue national accreditation, as it is not a state or national requirement, because we value the assessment of the quality of our programs against a set of very rigorous national standards and by our peers and P-12 school practitioners."
