Huntington, Ind.— The Department of Education at Huntington College is scheduled for an April 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 Huntington College recognize 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 Huntington College's teacher education program to:
Board of Examiners
2010 Massachusetts Avenue NW, Suite 500
Washingon, D.C. 20036-1023
or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered at Huntington College, 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 received will be sent to Huntington College for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
Letters of comment should be received no later than January 23, 2005.
