CAEP Information

Information regarding CAEP Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation, the current accreditation body for the College of Education.

The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) became fully operational as the sole accrediting body for educator preparation providers on July 1, 2013. Its mission is to advance equity and excellence in educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning. CAEP has replaced the former NCATE accreditation body, which had accredited Penn State's teacher education programs since January 1, 1965.

The next CAEP site visit will be Spring 2019. Further information about this visit will be posted at this site.
