    Teacher Education Accreditation Council 

    The teacher education and school building leadership programs are accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC). The common purpose of TEAC is “to prepare competent, caring, and qualified educators.” Being accredited by TEAC means the school of education has succeeded in accomplishing this primary goal.

    Four main principles guide TEAC’s accreditation process — principles the School of Education and Health has proven our curriculum meets:

    1. It leads to program improvement, which is a continuous process in which each step helps define the next one and moves it forward.
    2. It is inquiry driven, starting from the faculty’s own questions and curiosity about the program’s accomplishments.
    3. It examines the trustworthiness and adequacy of the evidence the faculty relies on to support its claims about its students, and it examines the effectiveness of the system the faculty has in place to control and monitor the program’s quality.
    4. It is frugal, not burdening the program and institution with unnecessary activities or costs in paperwork, personnel, time or money.

    New York State Education Department

The rigorous and respected NYSED is responsible for the supervision of all New York state colleges and universities, public schools and standardized testing, as well as the production and administration of state tests and Regents Examinations.
