As a student enrolled in the School of Education, you benefit from programs that meet the very highest level of standards in curriculum and instruction emphasizing best practices in teaching, counseling, school psychology and leadership. Our teacher preparation program, encompassing all our many specializations, is accredited by the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), dedicated to the preparation of competent, caring and qualified educators. In addition, we are affiliated with numerous New York City public schools, from pre-school to secondary levels, as well as many other educational and mental health facilities and institutions. Our students participate in a wide variety of fieldwork, student teaching and internship experiences, many leading to permanent positions. By working directly in schools, classrooms and mental health facilities, alongside professionals in the field, they gain the knowledge and the skills that ground them in the latest strategies and practices in their area of study, while establishing a valuable network of contacts.
The links to the left provide information on our accrediting agency and the broad array of schools and other institutions with which we are affiliated.
Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC)
The Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) , founded in 1997, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving academic degree programs for professional educators, those who will teach and lead in schools, pre-K through grade 12. TEAC’s goal is to support the preparation of competent, caring and qualified professional educators.
TEAC’s primary work is accrediting undergraduate and graduate professional education programs in order to assure the public about the quality of college and university programs. The education program, not the college, school, department or other administrative unit of the institution, receives TEAC accreditation.
TEAC’s entire accreditation process is built around the program’s case that it prepares competent, caring, and qualified professional educators. TEAC requires the program to have evidence to support its case, and the accreditation process examines and verifies the evidence.
TEAC’s membership represents education programs within a broad range of higher education institutions, from small liberal arts colleges to large research universities, and includes professional organizations.
Institutions that wish to pursue accreditation for their programs hold candidate membership in TEAC. Affiliate membership is granted to institutions that support the TEAC agenda but do not wish to pursue accreditation for any of their programs, and it is granted similarly to agencies, organizations, or individuals.
TEAC conducts meetings and workshops for its members to share information about innovation in program design and effectiveness. TEAC is an advocate for improvements in professional education programs based on research and confirmed scholarship.
Recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation and by the U.S. Department of Education, TEAC also is a member of the Association of Specialized and Professional Accreditation, the American Council on Education, Association of Teacher Educators and the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification.
