Southern Miss teacher education receives continued accreditation | Schools
The National Commission for Accreditation of Teacher Education has awarded The University of Southern Mississippi continued accreditation, affirming its teacher education programs meet the organization’s rigorous standards for excellence.
NCATE’s stated dual mission is accountability and improvement in education preparation. It holds accredited institutions accountable for meeting its criteria and encourages unaccredited schools to demonstrate the quality of their programs by working for and achieving professional accreditation. Southern Miss has been continually accredited by NCATE since 1954, the first year NCATE was established.
"Southern Miss is known for our outstanding teacher education programs,” said Southern Miss Provost Dr. Denis Wiesenburg. “We’re delighted our programs and professional education faculty are again recognized by NCATE for the quality students they produce."
