College of Education earns re-accreditation

The Continuous Improvement Commission of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) announced from its October meeting that the SAU College of Education earned continued NCATE accreditation at the initial teacher preparation and advanced preparation levels.

“This accreditation is so important not only to the College of Education, but to the entire University as an indicator of the quality of our programs,” said Dr. Zaidy Mohdzain, dean of the SAU College of Education.

Founded in 1954, NCATE is recognized by the U. S. Department of Education as a specialized accrediting body for schools, colleges, and departments of education. NCATE and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) have consolidated and transitioned into the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
