    A Reputation for Excellence

    Regardless of the program students choose, the college enables them to acquire theoretical, practical, and technological knowledge and skills required to become outstanding professionals. Faculty members are teacher-scholars who are dedicated to excellence in the classroom and continued research in their fields of study.

    The College of Education and Communications majors all receive extensive experiential learning opportunities. Undergraduate educator preparation majors receive early field experiences prior to student teaching, and the Educator Preparation Office collaborates with school districts to develop Professional Development School and other partnerships.

    Speech-language pathology and audiology majors experience simulated learning in conjunction with students in other majors on campus (e.g., nursing, food and nutrition) and they obtain clinical hours with actual patients in on-campus and off-campus clinics.

    Communications media majors can choose from a number of curriculum tracks and have access to the campus radio station and television station as well as labs for graphics and multimedia, digital photography, and audio production.

    The college supports six centers and clinics that provide service to the community and offer supervised training venues for our students. Our faculty members are teacher-scholars who are dedicated to excellence in the classroom and continued research in their fields of study.

    Innovative Outreach

    The spring 2017 group of International Leaders in Education Program (ILEP)  fellows, hosted by the College of Education and Communications and the Office of International Education, completed their program.

    Call For Third-Party Comments 

    The College of Education and Communications Educator Preparation Programs at Indiana University of Pennsylvania are hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) on November 4–6, 2018. 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).

    Visit our CAEP Annual Reporting Measures for additional information about our programs.

    We invite you to submit written testimony to:

    CAEP
    1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
    Washington, DC 20036
    Or by e-mail to: callforcomments@caepnet.org

    Such comments must be within the specified period and based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, which recognize that:

    • In CAEP’s performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, EPPs must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
    • A professional education provider that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.
    • Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the respondent’s relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).
