Hanover College and its Teacher Education Program welcomed examininers from Illinois, Missouri, West Virginia, Montana, Michigan, and Indiana on April 5, 6, 7, and 8 for an in depth look into the program for continued accreditation from the national organization referred to as NCATE (National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education). All examiners are professors of education at their respective universities who volunteer their time to become extremely knowedgeable about the standards required for NCATE approval. Our visit went very well and we hope to learn the results in early fall. The education faculty would like to extend a huge THANK YOU to all who agreed to be interviewed by the board of examiners - this includes Hanover College faculty, staff, administrators, and teacher candidates, as well as many of our cooperating school teachers and administrators, alumni, and others. The time you took out of your day on our behalf is greatly appreciated - thank you again- it is a pleasure to work with professionals like all of you!

The Hanover College Education Department works in collaboration with many professionals in the field to ensure that our program completers are strong candidates for the jobs they seek.
