New England Commission of Higher Education invitation to public comment
Quinnipiac University underwent a comprehensive evaluation visit on October 4 to 7, by a team representing the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges NEASC).
The New England Commission of Higher Education is one of seven accrediting commissions in the United States that provide institutional accreditation on a regional basis. Accreditation is voluntary and applies to the institution as a whole. Quinnipiac has been accredited by the Commission since 1958 and was last reviewed in 2009. Its accreditation by the Commission encompasses the entire institution.
The public is invited to submit comments regarding the institution.
Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation invitation to public comment
The School of Education at Quinnipiac University is hosting an accreditation visit by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) from May 23-25, 2021. Interested parties are invited to submit third-party comments to the site team. Please note that comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party's relationship to the provider (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates). Letters of comment should be received no later than February 20, 2021.
We invite you to submit written testimony to:
1140 19th Street NW, Suite 400
Washington, DC 20036
or by email to: email@example.com
Such comments must be within the specified period and based on the core tenets of CAEP accreditation standards of excellence, which recognize that:
- In CAEP's performance-based system, accreditation is based on evidence that demonstrates that teacher candidates know the subject matter and can teach it effectively so that students learn. In the CAEP system, EPPs must prove that candidates can connect theory to practice and be effective in an actual P-12 classroom.
- A professional education provider that is accredited by CAEP is expected to be involved in ongoing planning and evaluation; engaged in continuous assessment and development; ensure that faculty and programs reflect new knowledge, practice, and technologies; and be involved in continuous development in response to the evolving world of education and educational reform.
- Comments must address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, 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 the university for comment prior to the review. No anonymous testimony will be considered.
