More about CAEP standards

With this accreditation, Troy University’s College of Education has proven its dedication to providing students with the best possible preparation for a career in education. According to reports, programs must pass peer review of the CAEP standards to earn accreditation. 

The standards are based on two principles. First, solid evidence indicates that the program’s graduates are “competent and caring educators.” Secondly, additional evidence must support the program’s educators and leaders can create a “culture of evidence and use it to maintain and enhance the quality of the professional programs they offer.”
