Accreditation is the recognition that an institution maintains standards requisite for its graduates to gain admission to other reputable institutions of higher learning or to achieve credentials for professional practice. The goal of accreditation is to ensure that education provided by institutions of higher education meets acceptable levels of quality.

The Hunter College School of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation Teacher Education (NCATE) and each teacher preparation program is nationally recognized by its respective Specialized Professional Association (SPA). The School Counseling and Rehabilitation Counseling programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).

Institutional Research

Institutional Research provides analytical support services to the School of Education, other units of the College, and to external stakeholders. Its primary purpose is to facilitate the collection, analysis, and interpretation of educator preparation data and the provision of academic information to support assessment and accreditation endeavors, planning, data-driven decision making, and continuous improvement.
