Education Program Accreditation and Annual Reports
The Vincennes University (VU) teacher preparation program has been accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since 2012. National accreditation is a mark of distinction and provides recognition that educator preparation programs have met national professional standards.
In 2014, the consolidation of NCATE into the accrediting body of the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), an evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning, was recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation. Vincennes University is currently fully accredited through CAEP.
The national accreditation process includes two parts. Part 1 involves review of individual programs. All initial licensure programs are approved by the Indiana Department of Education. Additionally, each licensure program is recognized a specialty professional organization as indicated in the chart below. Part 2 of the national accreditation process involves the review of the unit (the collection of programs). The unit reviews include a self-study and an on-site visit.
