Eastern Michigan University seeks accreditation comments

YPSILANTI - The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is calling for public comments as the faculty and staff at Eastern Michigan University prepare for its fall 2003 accreditation review.

“Both NCATE and the University recognize graduates, parents, schools and community organizations have valuable perspectives on the quality of the programs that prepare teachers and other school personnel,” said Jerry Robbins, dean of EMU’s College of Education. “We invite interested parties to submit written testimony.”

Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered at EMU and should specify the respondent’s relationship, if any, to the institution. Copies of all correspondence will be sent to EMU for comment prior to the review. No anonymous or oral testimony will be considered. Letters should be received by September 12.

Comments should be mailed to: Board of Examiners, NCATE, 2010 Massachusetts Ave., NW, Washington DC 20036-1023.
