After five years of national accreditation through NCATE (the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education), the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) Review Board recommended unanimously, on June 23, 2009, that the College’s Professional Teacher Education Program and Leader in Education and Administrative Development Program be fully accredited through 2015. All teacher preparation programs are aligned with InTASC (Interstate Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium, a division of the Council of Chief State School Officers – CCSS) as a result of aligning programs with the Utah Effective Teacher Standards (UETS). In addition, the Physical Education Department’s Athletic Training major and program is fully accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education (CAATE), Music Education is accredited through the National Association of Schools of Music (NASM), the Art Education program is accredited with the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD), and our Dance Education program is accredited with the National Association of Schools of Dance (NASD).
Currently, the Professional Teacher Education Program at SUU is seeking re-accreditation through the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). Such accreditation, when granted will run through 2022.
