Welcome from the Dean

On behalf of the faculty, staff, and students in educator preparation programs, I extend a warm welcome to the NCATE Board of Examiners who will be visiting the EIU campus November 6- 10, 2010. It is also a pleasure to welcome you to our accreditation website.

EIU has a proud history of providing all students with positive, integrative educational experiences. National accreditation of our educator preparation programs is one of many avenues used to provide evidence of the high quality programs offered to EIU students. Our faculty is dedicated to working closely with students as they prepare themselves to become tomorrow's leaders throughout Illinois and beyond. We are proud of the quality of our programs, our faculty and staff, and most of all our graduates.

Welcome to our accreditation website and to EIU!
