Alabama State University's College of Education (COE) has been granted Accreditation through the spring semester of 2029 by the Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for all of the College’s undergraduate and graduate programs in education. 

"Accreditation is granted at the initial-licensure level and the advanced-level and our status is effective now through Spring 2029 with the next site review not taking place until Fall 2028," COE Dean, Dr. Nicole Yvette Strange-Martin said.

She shared that accreditation is an important accomplishment both the COE and ASU. 

"Accreditation status attracts students and faculty alike and exhibits that Alabama State University's COE is prepared to continue offering exemplary content knowledge, creating mutually beneficial partnerships, recruiting outstanding students globally and maintaining quality assurance for its academic programs," stated Dean Strange-Martin. 

The Dean stated that it is an honor for her to serve as the leader of COE during this exciting time.   

"Since my arrival as dean in January 2021, I was first tasked with the CAEP accreditation. Our work-flow teams were organized and faculty began their input. I have waited on this moment and I am completely elated," Strange-Martin shared. 

"I want to thank President Quinton T. Ross, Jr.  and Provost Carl S. Pettis for supporting the College of Education because their outstanding executive leadership truly set the tone for the College of Education to succeed for its students," said Dean Strange-Martin.
