College of Education

At the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, graduate students in the College of Education have many different opportunities to expand their knowledge and skills in preparation for new educational roles and increased leadership responsibilities. While many professional education programs lead to advanced NC licensure, other programs lead to both initial and advanced licensure, and still others are not associated with licensure. The College of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), and the Counseling programs are accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Counseling and Related Programs (CACREP). All licensure programs are approved by the North Carolina State Board of Education. Program graduates positively influence their peers, clients, and students; contribute to the development of effective schools and agencies for all children; and work to alleviate and prevent many of today’s educational and social obstacles. The curricula of most of the College of Education’s teacher education program align with the core propositions, skill sets, academic language, and concepts from the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Activities are designed to provide information and support to potential and current candidates for NBPTS certification.

One of the college’s most important functions is to serve as a regional resource in education, research, and service to help address the challenges of urban schools. The college has a strong partnership with the 12 school districts in the Southwest Education Alliance and is located within the bounds of Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS), a large urban district.
