The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is the profession's mechanism to help establish high quality teacher
preparation. Through the process of professional accreditation of schools, colleges
and departments of education, NCATE works to make a difference in the quality of
teaching and teacher preparation today, tomorrow, and for the next century.
From its beginnings Southeast Missouri State University has maintained
teacher education as a primary goal and in 1992 was fully accredited by
Welcome to the NCATE Web site for the College of Education at
Southeast Missouri State University.
The concept of this site is to provide our NCATE materials
in a "virtual" documents room. It is hoped that
when this site is completely up and running, that the documents will be
updated on an ongoing basis -- thus creating the most complete and
current look of the College as it relates to our continuing accreditation efforts.
Once the documents are placed on this page, they become available to the entire education
community. This makes it easier for all involved to disseminate
and obtain information.
We have made every attempt to make this page as user friendly as possible.
The column on the left hand side of this page will follow you through
out most of the site. There are times that certain links
will spawn external viewers. Hopefully this will not be too much of a
distraction from the continuity of this site.
We expect that some will have comments and suggestions regarding the
site. We would appreciate any comments that you have. Please
address them to Dr. Verl T. Pope at firstname.lastname@example.org.
