Wagner College's Department of Education is fully accredited through 2019 by the country's leading accreditation board for the preparation of professional educators: NCATE.
In spring of 2012, we received notification that the NCATE Review Team recommended the unit be recertified, recommending no areas for improvement. In the exit interview with faculty, the Review Team commended faculty and the quality of our programs, adding that Wagner's students were the "diamonds" of our efforts. We couldn't agree more.
