Welcome to the College of Education’s accreditation website.  On behalf of the faculty, I am pleased to introduce you to our college and campus.  We are very proud of all we have accomplished since receiving our separate SACS accreditation in January, 2010.  The University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee is poised to continue to serve our region, our schools, and our business and non-profit sectors well.

We have adopted a process theme as part of the development of our conceptual framework of Learn. Lead. Inspire. Transform.  We trust that you will agree that our students, faculty, staff, and administration are well on our way to realizing that ideal everyday.

Our accreditation website includes the preconditions as we submitted them to NCATE on September 1, 2012 and the Institutional Report for First Accreditation: Continuous Improvement Pathway as revised by NCATE in June, 2012.  The latter is a work in progress.
