The Hunter College School of Education and its programs are recognized by three accrediting bodies.
It is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, which is recognized by the United States Department of Education as a professional accrediting body for teacher preparation and other professional school personnel.
The rehabilitation counseling program is accredited by the Counsel on Rehabilitation Education (CORE). Information about the program's performance can be found in the 2011-2012 Rehabilitation Counseling Program Outcomes Report
The school counseling program is accredited by the Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs (CACREP).
Last year, there were 30 graduates of Hunter College’s School Counseling program. Of the admitted students, 73% graduate from the program in the expected time period and 80% of those program graduates responding to surveys who are actively seeking jobs are employed in the recognized occupation for which they were trained or in a related comparable recognized occupation. Data on licensure or certification examination pass rates are not provided for this program because our state does not require an examination to obtain a school counseling certification.
In Fall 2012, there were 101 students enrolled in the program, of whom 90% were women and 10% men. The student body is highly diverse: 56% Whites, 20% Hispanics, 13% Blacks, 6% two or more races, and 5% Asians. Courses accommodate both part-time and full-time students.
As part of the school’s ongoing assessment activities to maintain accreditation and to continue improving our programs and services, the School of Education defined a conceptual framework articulating the school’s mission, defined program objectives and key assessments; implemented a comprehensive survey cycle; collects and monitors student data at point of entry, throughout program coursework, during clinical experiences, at program completion, and one year after graduation.
Information about the assessment system and electronic data collection are archived and operated in two web-based systems.
