The College of Education at Concordia University, Seward, Neb., is scheduled for a Spring 2005 accreditation review by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). Federal regulations require that accrediting agencies allow for public comment on the qualifications of institutions or programs under consideration for first accreditation or continuing accreditation.
Both NCATE and Concordia University recognize that graduates, parents, schools and community organizations have valuable perspectives on the quality of the programs that prepare teachers and other school personnel. We invite interested parties to submit written testimony on the College of Education to the Board of Examiners, NCATE, 2010 Massachusetts Ave. N.W., Ste. 500, Washington, DC 20036-1023; e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered at Concordia University, Seward, Neb., and should specify the respondent’s relationship, if any, to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Copies of all correspondence will be sent to Concordia University for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered. Letters of comment should be received no later than Dec. 15.
