Accreditation

The College of Education and Human Services is nationally accredited by CAEP (Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation). The CAEP accreditation includes all of our programs in initial teacher preparation. Programs for advanced school professionals have continuing NCATE accreditation. The doctoral counseling psychology is accredited by the APA (American Psychological Association) and the Marriage and Family Therapy program is accredited by COAMFTE (Commission on Accreditation for Marriage and Family Therapy Education). All programs regularly assess student learning and program effectiveness in order to continuously improve. 

In addition to CAEP accreditation for the unit, individual programs related to K-12 education are nationally recognized by their professional associations: elementary education (ACEI), special education (CEC), English education (NCTE), mathematics education (NCTM), social studies education (NCSS), instructional design and technology (ISTE), school library media specialist (ISTE), and education leadership (ELCC).
