Niagara University’s College of Education Earns Highest National Accreditation
Niagara University’s commitment to holding itself to the highest national and international standards in teacher education has been reaffirmed.
NU’s College of Education has received accreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), which was created in 2010 by the consolidation of the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education and the Teacher Education Accreditation Council. The college first received NCATE accreditation in 1984 and has continued to expand the quality of its programs and partnerships with local P-12 schools and community agencies over the past 33 years.
There are more than 100 institutions in New York that offer education programs, but NU is one of only eight in the state that has earned CAEP accreditation.
The CAEP accreditation was granted for a period of seven years.
