The Education Division was delighted to receive the following news this past fall.
The teacher preparation and the education administration program at Caldwell College are each awarded TEAC (Teacher Education Accreditation Council) accreditation by the Inquiry Brief Commission of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for a period of seven years, from October 2013 to October 2020. The accreditation does not include individual education courses that the EPP (Education Preparation Program) offers to P-12 educators for professional development, relicensure or other purposes.
The announcement came after long preparation and the filing of inquiry briefs followed by a three-day visit on campus to verify the claims for the programs with administration, faculty, students, cooperating teachers and alumni. The Education Division’s Dr. Janice Stewart, Dr. John McIntyre, Dr. Robert Rosado and Dr. Joan Moriarty met the TEAC and CAEP commissioners and defended the information in the briefs to gain the highest accreditation status awarded.This was a collaborative initiative by all members of the Education Division and members of the Caldwell College community.
