Good News for the COE

Quantitatively, qualitatively, and affectively, I know that people I work with at the University of South Alabama College of Education sincerely care about the education and quality of life of the students they interact with. From K-12 to higher education issues, we are caring, thoughtful people who share our talents in diverse ways while simultaneously navigating our own complex lives. This notice does not surprise me and is well-derserved. THANK YOU to those of you who did so much to provide evidence of the collective good works we each strive to provide daily.

Message from Dean Richard Hayes:

"I am pleased to share with you that the recommendation of the NCATE and ALSDE on-site reviewers will be that the COE has met all six standards at both the initial and advanced levels. Although the recommendations are preliminary and yet to be presented in detail to the NCATE Board for review, we can be very proud of the progress we have made and of the overall quality of our programs. Congratulations and thanks to all of you who made this outcome possible. "

And kudos to Wanda Maulding who has lived with all of this for two years and survived the stress of trying to get a group of professors to actually get things done accurately and on time (sort of).

I agree. I feel a sense of collective pride. So many people put in long hours of tedious work to pull together the evidence to show others what we already know about our programs. It obviously paid off. Congrats to all.
