TEAC is pleased to welcome the “Aloha State of Hawaii” as its newest state partner. Hawaii joins 13 other states that have signed partnership agreements with TEAC.
States with TEAC Agreements:
TEAC has partnership agreements with 13 other states – California, Colorado, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Maine, Michigan, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Utah, Virginia, and West Virginia. Discussions about partnership agreements are currently underway in a number of other states.
Advantages to States with TEAC Agreements
- TEAC requires that claims made in its self-study document, the Inquiry Brief, be consistent with claims made elsewhere; therefore, the program must incorporate the state’s standards.
- State program (credentialing/endorsement area) approval and national accreditation through TEAC can be coordinated, thus saving valuable time, money, and staff resources.
- National accreditation is more attractive to institutions when it is integrated with the state’s program approval process.
- TEAC shares valuable information with the states that would otherwise be unavailable.
- TEAC’s accreditation process is based on empirical evidence and data that is clear, convincing, and contributes to on-going program improvement.
