Associate Vice President for Global Affairs Yuhang Rong, Ph.D., was appointed as a member of Board of Directors on July 1, 2020 by the Council of Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), the national accreditation agency for educator preparation programs. UConn’s Neag School of Education is accredited by CAEP.
The newest members are passionate about guaranteeing everyone is “prepared to ensure students of all backgrounds receive equal opportunity in the classroom,” says CAEP President Christopher A. Koch in the official press release.
The CAEP helps to ensure that preparation programs are more likely to produce successful educators through evidence-based analysis of their programs and their efficacy, according to the website. CAEP is the sole accrediting body for educator preparation recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). Its Board of Directors is responsible for creating policy, handling appointments to the Accreditation Council and various committees, and reviewing the performance and activities of CAEP.
