Teacher Education Programs Earn Re-accreditation

 Teacher Education Programs Earn Re-accreditation

11/08/2011 

SUNY Cortland’s teacher education programs recently were re-accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

The council’s unqualified approval means the College’s program, the largest teacher education program in New York state, has passed a rigorous and thorough external review and meets the highest national standards for teacher preparation.

“This is wonderful news and a testament to the hard work and dedication of the entire campus in preparing our teacher candidates,” said SUNY Cortland Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Mark Prus.

NCATE’s Unit Accreditation Board last week informed the College that it had been reaccredited without any qualifications, meaning NCATE’s review found no deficiencies that required correction.

NCATE was created to establish professional standards for teacher, administrator and education specialist preparation programs. The council’s approval indicates graduates of SUNY Cortland’s education programs are fully prepared to enter the teaching field.
