Accreditation

The College of Education at the University of Memphis is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), a national accrediting body for schools, colleges, and departments of education that was authorized by the U.S. Department of Education. This accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs at the main and Jackson Campuses.

In 2014 NCATE became the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), the single U.S. Department of Education accrediting body for schools, colleges, and departments of education. This body determines which schools, colleges, and departments of education provide extensive data meeting rigorous national standards in preparing teachers and other school specialists for the classroom. In this rigorous performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence demonstrating that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. Educator Preparation Programs must demonstrate that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.

A professional education unit that is accredited is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.

Third Party Comments

The College of Education at the University of Memphis is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) using the Legacy NCATE Standards in April 2016. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the visiting team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party's relationship to the Education Preparation Program or EPP (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to the university for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.

We invite you to submit written testimony related to the quality of professional education programs offered no later than December 31, 2015 to:
