SUNY Cortland, a nationally accredited college for teacher education, will have the opportunity to earn that recognition again when a team from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) visits campus March 5-9.
NCATE is the largest national accrediting body for teacher education programs in the United States. SUNY Cortland was accredited in 2004 following the last site visit by a national team of reviewers.
During their time here, five members of the Board of Examiners will interview people across campus, visit partner schools and prepare a reaccreditation report. They may arrive unannounced to observe classes and are invited to ask members of the campus community questions about their experience at Cortland.
The College’s NCATE Committee wants students, faculty and staff to be aware of the visit and to present all of the positive aspects of SUNY Cortland.
