TEAC's Accreditation Process at a Glance, 2009-2011
Teacher Education Accreditation Council
The Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC), founded in 1997, is dedicated to improving academic degree programs for professional educators--those who teach and lead in schools, pre-K through grade 12. TEAC accredits undergraduate and graduate programs, including alternate route programs, based on (1) the evidence they have that they prepare competent, caring, and qualified professional educators and (2) their capacity to monitor and improve the program's quality. TEAC believes this is the soundest way to assure the public about the quality of college and university programs. This paper includes the following: (1) TEAC's Goal and Accreditation Principles; (2) TEAC's Philosophy of Accreditation; (3) Overview of TEAC's Accreditation Process; (4) TEAC's Accreditation Status Designations; (5) TEAC's Relationship to States, Other Accreditors, and Professional Associations; (6) TEAC's Accreditation Goal, Principles, and Standards; and (7) TEAC's Accreditation Framework: TEAC's Principles and Standards.
