• NCATE Accredited, CAEP Accreditation Eligible

    IUP’s teacher education programs are recognized both nationally and regionally.

    NCATE accreditation is a process of peer review that the educational community has adopted for its self-regulation. It is a voluntary process intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of teacher preparation programs, making it worthy of public confidence.

    Once accredited by NCATE, IUP teacher preparation programs agree to abide by the standards of NCATE and to take responsibility for their own continuous improvement.
