Four educator education programs have received national
recognition for meeting the highest standards from their professional
associations. This recognition is the formal affirmation given to a program meeting
the stringent standards set forth by their specialized organization.
The English Education program under the coordination of Jo-Anne Kerr, the Literacy Program under the coordination of DeAnna
Laverick, the Mathematics Education Program under the coordination of Brian Sharp,
and the Social Studies Education Program under the coordination of Werner Lippert are
recognized. We should also thank the faculty and students in these programs, for
without them this honor would not be possible.
We are proud of our programs’ accomplishments and recognize
that accreditation from our specialized associations helps us to better prepare
our candidates to meet the growing needs of the field of education. This
recognition is a quality assurance that demonstrates our willingness to meet
the standards set by the organizations representing the academic community.
This acknowledgement gives those programs the seal of approval that assures
quality in educator preparation.
