SUNO’s College of Education & Human Development Accreditation Re-Affirmed

NEW ORLEANS, LA – May 11, 2016 – The accreditation of SUNO’s College of Education and Human Development has been re-affirmed by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP)/National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The accreditation is granted until 2023.

The CAEP/NCATE accreditation team, which last visited in 2008, was impressed with what the College of Education has accomplished since going through the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Southern University at New Orleans (SUNO) has been successful in every accreditation initiative embarked upon since 2006.

“This is an extremely significant accomplishment for Southern University at New Orleans and the College of Education & Human Development,” said Dr. Willie Jones, Interim Dean. “Achieving CAEP/NCATE accreditation is a validation of the commitment that SUNO has made in providing the rigorous teacher preparation programs required for our students to achieve success in the classroom after graduation.”

Chancellor Victor Ukpolo is pleased with the College of Education’s re-affirmation. “This is a great achievement for the College of Education and Human Development. The dean, faculty and staff have worked diligently to provide the best preparation and education to our students,’’ the Chancellor said. “This is a testament to all their hard work.”
