Accreditation

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."

Teacher Education

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.

Educational Leadership

In October 2013. TEAC and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) awarded full national accreditation to our Educational Leadership program for a period of seven years (through October, 2020). This recognition means that GSE's Educational Leadership Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS) program meets all quality standards and expectations of both New York State and TEAC/CAEP.
