CAEP’s mission is to advance equity and excellence in educator preparation through evidence-based accreditation that assures quality and supports continuous improvement to strengthen P-12 learning.

The rigorous CAEP Standards define an accreditation process that is radically – and intentionally – different from previous generations of educator preparation accreditors. The CAEP Standards call on educator preparation providers (EPPs) to imagine what success looks like in their local context, to create a culture of continuous improvement at the faculty level, and to define how they will link valid, reliable evidence to demonstrate this achievement.

CAEP Voices is a project that captures what this looks like – and what it means – from the educator preparation professionals leading the work. Hear from deans, assessment coordinators, knowledge managers, and others on how they made the CAEP Standards work for their EPPs.
