Dowling College School of Education Receives NCATE Accreditation
Esteemed National Organization Recognizes Leading Program

The professional education unit of Dowling College’s School of Education has been accredited by The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).

NCATE is a non-profit, non-governmental organization, which accredits colleges and universities through a stringent, comprehensive review process. NCATEs performance-based system of accreditation fosters competent classroom teachers who work to improve the education of all Pre-K-12 students.

Dr. Robert Manley, Dean of Dowling’s School of Education observed that  “Our faculty represents  the most accomplished educators and scholars in their respective fields. They are preparing the next generation of teachers in Professional Development Academies within large and diverse school districts. The NCATE accreditation affirms what our graduates have always told us: “The course work, faculty, support services and student-teacher placement provided by Dowling College  prepares us  for successful careers in education.”

Dowling College, which educates more teachers than any other college or university on Long Island, features internationally known faculty, including one of the largest staffs of literacy and special education experts in the nation.
