Antioch University Midwest School of Education Earns CAEP Reaccreditation

YELLOW SPRINGS, OH, June 2, 2014 – The Antioch University Midwest School of Education has received reaccreditation from the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP). All of the programs offered in the School of Education are accredited until 2019.

“We are thrilled, but not surprised to receive this recognition from CAEP,” said Dr. Karen Schuster Webb, president of Antioch University Midwest. “We strongly believe that excellent teacher preparation is foundational for improved student achievement. Receiving continuing accreditation from CAEP is a welcome acknowledgement of our commitment to our mission to provide high quality training for the next generation of educators.”
