Teacher Education Accreditation

After seven years of TEAC accreditation, The Empire State College Teacher Education Programs, which are designed to attract high quality candidates to the field of education by providing innovative pathways to teacher certification in the state of New York, are transitioning accreditors to the Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation (AAQEP) under New York State Regents Subpart 4-2 of the Rules of the Board of Regents of New York State and Section 52.21of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education. The Association for Advancing Quality in Educator Preparation is a new accrediting agency whose founding values reflect the Empire State College Teacher Education Programs’ values of high quality and innovation in educator preparation. Under the New York State Regents Subpart 4-2 of the Rules of the Board of Regents of New York State and Section 52.21 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education, Empire State College’s Teacher Education Programs are considered continuously accredited for up to five years (2018-2023) during this transition for New York State Education Department purposes.
