School of Education accreditation


All professional education programs, bachelor’s level and graduate level licensure programs, at Gardner-Webb University are state approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education (SBE). The School of Education continues to be nationally accredited in good standing with NCATE, which merged with TEAC to become the Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Preparation (CAEP) in 2013. The only program within the School of Education, which is not accredited by SBE or CAEP is the Doctor of Education in Organizational Leadership. Gardner-Webb looks forward to maintaining our national accreditation status following our first CAEP accreditation review, which scheduled for April 2019.
