Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) update

UDM Teacher Education Attains National Accreditation!

The University of Detroit Mercy Education Department is proud to announce its national accreditation by the Teacher Education Council (TEAC) effective October 25, 2012.

We are now entitled to use the TEAC affiliation and accreditation in the University of Detroit Mercy Teacher Education Program.  Our mission is to develop educators who:

  • Are ethical, value-directed persons;
  • Possess a scholarly mastery of subject matter;
  • Recognize that all children can learn; and
  • Engage students in an interactive, dynamic process of learning

The Education Department is granted TEAC Initial Accreditation for a period of five years, from October 2012 to October 2017.  This accreditation certifies that the University of Detroit Mercy’s professional education program has provided evidence it adheres to TEAC’s Quality Principles.

In keeping with TEAC’s policy on Program Performance Disclosure (Policy XI), the Education Department is posting a link on our program’s website to the Summary of the Case that is also posted on the TEAC website (www.teac.org/membership/teac-members) and to the Title II Reporting Website (https://title2.ed.gov/Title2STRC/DataTools/Files.aspx).  

Congratulations to the UDM Department of Education on achieving national accreditation from the Teacher Accreditation Council!
