Preparing Educators as Leaders

National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education

Opportunity for Comments: »

NCATE logo

The faculty and staff at the University of Kansas School of Education strive to continually improve the quality of our professional education programs. Maintaining our national accreditation through the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) plays a significant role in those efforts.

On October 26, 2014, the KU School of Education will host an accreditation visit by NCATE. Prior to that visit, we invite interested parties to submit third-party comments to the visiting Board of Examiners (BOE). Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the third-party's relationship to the KU School of Education (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Correspondence, which must be received by NCATE no later than July 26, 2014, will be submitted to the KU School of Education for response. NCATE will not upload anonymous comments to the BOE team or the KU School of Education. Accreditation reviews are hosted every seven years, and we will not collect third-party comments again until 2021.

We invite you to submit written testimony to:

Board of Examiners

2010 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Suite 500
Washington, DC 20036-1023

KU Edwards Campus expands Degree In 3 offerings to include undergraduate program in Exercise Science. "Cook said there is a “tremendous explosion” of demand for IT workers, so IT is the logical area of study to launch Degree in 3. He said the Edwards Campus also is preparing to launch bachelor’s degrees in business administration and exercise science to the Degree in 3 model."
