Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation
SUPPORTING MATERIALS FOR CAEP
The Teachers College at Emporia State University is accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). CAEP is recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Accreditation is a nongovernmental activity based on peer review that serves the dual functions of assuring quality and promoting improvement. CAEP was created by the consolidation of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council. It is a unified accreditation system intent on raising the performance of all institutions focused on educator preparation. Approximately, 700 educator preparation providers participate in the CAEP Accreditation system, including some previously accredited through former standards.
Initial programs were fully accredited in 2019. Advanced programs are awaiting an accreditation decision for the November 2021 Interim Site Visit.
