Our Programs are Nationally Accredited
The College of Education and Human Services at Rider University was the first private university in New Jersey to hold the highest accreditation possible in teacher education from the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The College of Education and Human Services is currently accredited by Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), and the College has been accredited continuously since 1974.
The College of Education and Human Services graduate counseling programs are accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP), and are approved by the International Registry of Counsellor Education Programs (IRCEP).
The College of Education and Human Services graduate school psychology program holds the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) approval.
Periodic accreditation reviews and ongoing program evaluations assure that our philosophy and practices are current, we adhere to high standards, and we plan for future development. Program refinement occurs through self-study, strategic planning, and cooperative work with our various constituencies, which include public school personnel, colleagues in liberal arts and sciences, and colleagues in education programs in other institutions of higher education.
