OCU program accredited

The major nationwide teacher education accreditation body recently accredited the education department at Oklahoma City University. The process for accreditation with the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education began five years ago. OCU passed every requirement in the review criteria: candidate knowledge, skills and professional dispositions; assessment system and unit evaluation; field experiences and clinical practice; diversity; faculty qualifications, performance and development; and unit governance and resources. The department offers certification programs in early childhood, elementary, secondary and PK-12 education.
