Catawba reaccredited
Catawba College’s Teacher Education Program has been reaccredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Catawba’s application was approved as meeting all required standards. The program will be up again for reaccreditation in the fall of 2014.
Dr. Jim Stringfield, chair and professor of Catawba’s Teacher Education Department, said, “Continuing accreditation by NCATE reaffirms the high quality of teacher education at Catawba College. When viewed in light of our full accreditation from the North Carolina State Board of Education, as well as a strong record of success on the IHE Performance Reports, our students, alumni, friends and other stakeholders can be justifiably proud of what they have helped us accomplish.”
Since 1991, Catawba has been accredited by NCATE to offer bachelor’s and master’s levels of professional education programs. The Department of Teacher Education is the only department at Catawba to offer graduate degree programs.
Members of Catawba’s Department of Teacher Education also include Dr. Lou Ann Kasias, professor; Dr. Cyndi Osterhus, Dr. Rhonda Truitt and Dr. Bonita Bloodworth, assistant professors; and Amanda Bosch, Curriculum Materials Center director.
Catawba has offered teacher education programs in Salisbury since 1925. Last year, there were 275 graduates who were employed as teachers in the Rowan-Salisbury Schools.
