The College of Education and Human Development at Northwestern State University hosted its accreditation visit by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) from Oct. 30 to Nov.1, 2011. Interested parties were invited to submit third-party comments to the visiting team. Please note that comments had to address substantive matters related to the quality of professional education programs offered, and should specify the party's relationship to the institution (i.e., graduate, present or former faculty member, employer of graduates).

Northwestern piloted a Continuous Improvement model for NCATE.  We are proud to announce that Northwestern received national accreditation, passing all standards with no deficiencies.
