The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE)

The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) currently accredits 632 colleges of education with nearly 100 more seeking NCATE accreditation. These institutions produce two-thirds of the nation’s new teachers, school specialists, and administrator graduates. These institutions also use NCATE standards to help ensure quality in all programs that prepare professionals to work in schools from preschool to higher education.
 

On November 17, 2006, following a meticulous review process, the Medgar Evers College Education Department received a thumbs-up from NCATE. Currently, programs in the Education Department are preparing for the next NCATE accreditation visit scheduled to be held in the spring of 2012.
