The College of Education certification programs are fully accredited by the State Board for Educator Certification. For more information, please visit the SBEC web site or read below.
The State Board for Educator Certification (SBEC) was created in 1995 by the 74th Legislature to govern the standards of the education profession. The 15-member board oversees all aspects of public school educator certification, continuing education, and standards of conduct. The Board is guided by the philosophy that educators will create higher standards for preparation, practice, and conduct than others outside the profession, and that educators will rigorously uphold these standards. Information about SBEC Board meetings for 1999 is posted under "SBEC Board Information and Agendas." There is also information about SBEC Board members in another section.
SBEC is dedicated to creating a system that produces educators who are recognized as professionals. The Board welcomes input from educators, educator preparation entities, and the public.
