The College of Education at the University of Findlay will host an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) in November 8-10, 2020.
Interested parties can submit third-party comments to the site team.
Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify commenter’s relationship to the College of Education (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).
Written testimony can be submitted to: CAEP, 1140 19th St. NW, Suite 400, Washington, DC 20036 or by e-mail firstname.lastname@example.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). Copies of all correspondence received will be sent to the university for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
