Welcome!

Kean University has enjoyed a long and rich history of preparing education professionals to work in New Jersey schools.  Since its inception, Kean University has been a forerunner in teacher education in New Jersey.  Today, Kean graduates are making a real difference in the lives of young people throughout the United States and abroad.  Our College of Education graduates represent the quality of our programs, and we continuously hear how wonderful a job our graduates do in their teaching assignments.

The College of Education has been accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) since 1955.  Our most recent visit by NCATE in Fall 2010 has resulted in our being accredited through 2017.  Notably, only one-third of the schools that produce teachers in the United and New Jersey earn this certification.  We value and respect the accreditation process, as it provides us with an opportunity to engage in serious self-study and reflection.
