Cannon-Clary College of Education
The Cannon-Clary College of Education is fully accredited by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) from 2016 to 2023. This accreditation includes the following sites: Searcy, Northwest Arkansas Professional Center, North Little Rock Professional Center, and Mid-South Professional Center. The accreditation does not include individual education courses that the EPP offers to P-12 educators for professional development, re-licensure, or other purposes.
Previously, the Cannon-Clary College of Education was continuously accredited by National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since the initial visit in 1961.
The Cannon-Clary College of Education has earned national accreditation by demonstrating excellence in the areas of content and pedagogy, clinical experiences, selectivity, program impact, and capacity for continuous improvement. CAEP is the sole national accreditor for educator preparation nationwide.
Transparency in Performance
The mission of CAEP advances excellent educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 student learning through an external peer-review process. In addition, the Cannon-Clary College of Education is annually required to provide federal reports on program completers and currently enrolled candidates.
Committed to providing public evidence on the quality of our educator programs, the Cannon-Clary College of Education has created this section to provide information regarding state licensure exam pass rates, GPAs of completers, survey results, and graduation/retention rates.
