Indiana University East’s School of Education received accreditation for seven years through the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The undergraduate program received continuing accreditation.
Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs Larry Richards said, “Accreditation of our professional degree programs is a sign of the quality upon which we insist, and that quality translates into successful graduates and communities. Our teacher education graduates are second to none.”
The Indiana University East School of Education is hosting an accreditation visit by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) March 24-26, 2013. The School of Education has been accredited by NCATE since January 1992.
Indiana University East has received continued accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (HLC). The HLC’s next comprehensive evaluation of IU East will take place in 2021-22.
Indiana University East will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit in October 2011 by a team representing the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools. IU East has been accredited by the Commission since 1971, and was last evaluated in 2002.
The National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission has announced that the NLNAC Board of Commissioners granted the Indiana University East School of Nursing Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program continuing accreditation for eight years. The next re-accreditation visit is scheduled for spring 2017. The commissioners commented that one of the School of Nursing’s strengths is the significant involvement of nursing students in service to the community.
