New students and their families gather in the Events Center for a luncheon before the start of their first semester at Binghamton University.
Binghamton University is accredited by The Middle States Commission on Higher Education. For programs leading to licensure in New York State, the Graduate School of Education also participates in accreditation from Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC). TEAC's goal is to "offer public assurance that educators are competent, caring, and qualified."
In September 2010, TEAC granted Continuing Accreditation to GSE's Teacher Education program for a period of ten years (until September 2020). This accreditation certifies that we provided evidence that our program is designed to prepare competent, caring, and qualified educators dedicated to their profession and to diverse learning communities, consistent with TEAC’s Standards and Quality Principles for Teacher Education Programs.
As a relatively new program, Educational Leadership is involved in the "self-study" that precedes accreditation. In 2013, TEAC will review this program for adherence to TEAC's Standards and Quality Principles for Educational Leadership Programs.
