Winter 2012

Dear GSE Alumni,

Happy New Year! The Graduate School of Education looks forward to a productive and successful 2012. As we begin the spring semester, we want to share the following exciting news with you:

The 2012 editions of Inside Grad Ed and GSE: Facts and Figures are out!

If you would like a hard copy of either of these publications, e-mail Michelle Adams at and include your mailing address.

The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) recently reaccredited GSE.

NCATE, which is responsible for evaluating 623 teacher-education organizations in the United States, reviews the school every five years. We are very pleased with the council’s confirmation of our School’s advances in assessing students and graduates, as well as the skills, attitudes and knowledge our students have developed here.

GSE now offers new extension programs in Adolescence Special Education!
