Vanguard University’s Graduate Program in Education recently went through a four-day visit from the Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC) to reaffirm the accreditation of its teaching credential program. From April 6-9, 2016, the five-member CTC team reviewed all of the program’s standards and documentations, as well as interviewing over 200 constituents of Vanguard’s teaching program.
The unanimous recommendation from the visiting CTC members was to grant our program a full seven-year Accreditation! As you might imagine, the faculty and staff of the Graduate Program in Education were elated! Contributions from faculty, staff, and our external community contributed greatly to this decision and our elation!
In late April, Dr. Jerry Ternes will attend the Commission on Accreditation (COA) session in Sacramento that will review Vanguard University’s program and make an official decision on the team’s recommendation. We would like to personally thank each person who contributed to this process for their ongoing commitment to Vanguard University’s Graduate Education and Teacher Credential Program!
