NCATE/CAEP Accreditation

Welcome to the office of the NCATE Coordinator of the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). This office has prime responsibility for preparation for the on-site accreditation review by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). 

Successfully completing the requirements of the NCATE accreditation protocol in 2008, strengthened the JSU CEHD unit in preparing its ideal educator- a caring and continually responsive educational professional who is ethically disposed and technically capable of implementing and supporting an accountable evidence-based equity pedagogy that is technologically enhanced and conducted with adaptive expertise.

In 2010, the decision was made to merge the NCATE accrediting body with the TEAC (Teacher Education Accreditation Council) accrediting body into one universal accrediting body and process, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).  The CEHD’s next accreditation review is scheduled for 2015.
