The unit accreditation
board of the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education
(NCATE) recently notified Dr. Cynthia Harper, dean of Jacksonville State
University's College of Education and Professional Studies, that accreditation
has been continued for JSU's professional education unit.
The board met the first week of April to determine the accreditation
status of 76 institutions. A formal letter and action report will be
mailed to the institution.
Dr. Harper said, "This is a wonderful day in the history of JSU's College of Education and Professional Studies. Fifty-two
years of continuous national accreditation is something to shout about, as far as I am concerned."
Dr. Harper had this comment for faculty: "A special thanks for the contributions you each have made to shape us into the
outstanding teacher education unit that we are today. Just know that I appreciate all of you and the monumental effort
required for us to achieve this milestone in the life of our college."
