Presently Edinboro University is seeking accreditation through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). As of July 2013, CAEP is the sole accrediting body for educator preparation providers due to the acceptance of the recommendation to form a new accrediting body by the boards of NCATE and TEAC in 2010. As of 2016, the CAEP accreditation standards are fully recognized, with the NCATE and TEAC legacy standards no longer being utilized for accreditation purposes.
The School of Education at Edinboro University is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on November 17th - 19th, 2019. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the site team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party's relationship to the provider (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).
We invite you to submit written testimony to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
Or by email to: email@example.com
Such comments must be submitted prior to October 5, 2019 and be based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, which recognize that:
EPP Annual Reports
CEC Special Education
ELCC Educational Leadership: Building and District
NAEYC Early Childhood

As part of the accreditation process, Edinboro University submitted a self-study report in February of 2019. The purpose of this report is to show that Edinboro University’s educator preparation programs meet the standards set forth by CAEP. This self-study report is the first source of information for the CAEP Site Visit, which is set for November of 2019.
