At the April 2015 meeting of the Teachers Academy Council of Program Coordinators the membership voted to change the name of the Teachers Academy to the Collaborative for Educator Preparation (CEP). The change was made in order to be inclusive of all professional education programs represented by the CEP. The CEP will continue to set policy, oversee assessment and accreditation, and act as a professional learning community for professional education programs across campus. It will continue to be led by the Council of Program Coordinators (CPC).
The CEP (formerly known as Teachers Academy) includes (a) a Council of Program Coordinators (CPC) that represents all professional education programs on the UNCG campus, (b) a Steering Committee that includes representatives from the units on campus, and (c) an Advisory Board consisting of members from the 15 school districts that constitute the Piedmont Triad Educational Consortium (PTEC). The Director of the Teachers Academy is also the Chair of the Council of Program Coordinators and reports to the UNCG dean of the School of Education.
The CEP oversees
- policies and practices of professional education programs at UNCG;
- accreditation and DPI reviews in conjunction with the SOE Director of Assessment
- dissemination of information about North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction (SDPI) licensing requirements; and
- the administration of school-university partnership activities related to USTEP funding.
