The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) has granted Miami University of Ohio full accreditation, making the university one of the country's first education preparation providers (EPP) to receive full accreditation.

“This achievement is the result of all the hard work put forth by our faculty, administrative staff and alumni who have helped uphold Miami’s high level of consistency and quality,” Miami College of Education, Health and Society Dean Michael Dantley said. “We are proud to be one of the very first intuitions to pass CAEP's initial accreditation process. And this recognition will help us continue to cultivate excellence and innovation among the next generation of future teachers and educational leaders.”

To receive the recognition, Miami underwent a comprehensive examination to ensure that the education programs met the rigorous CAEP national standards. The accreditation for Miami will be in effect until Nov. 15, 2023.

“We thought we might as well be on the front end of it and jump on board,” College of Education, Health and Society Director of Accreditation and Assessment Cheryl Irish said. “It all goes toward leadership in the professional community. We are setting the bar, if you will, for what CAEP evidence should look like.”
