NCATEThis accreditation covers initial teacher preparation programs and advanced educator preparation programs at the University of Connecticut’s main campus in Storrs, Conn., and regional campuses. However, the accreditation does not include individual education courses that the institution offers to P-12 educators for professional development, relicensure, or other purposes.
