The Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), formerly the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE), has continued the accreditation of Buffalo State College at the initial teacher preparation and advanced preparation levels through spring 2022. The accreditation decision indicates that Buffalo State and its Teacher Education Unit meet the rigorous standards set forth by the professional education community.
Buffalo State has received continuous accreditation by NCATE since the organization conducted its first review of institutions in 1954. The college offers 79 registered education programs within the Teacher Education Unit.
SUNY Buffalo State has a distinguished history of preparing educators to excel in a wide range of classroom settings. Our students are prepared as leaders and educators through a strong and diverse on-campus curriculum as well as through direct student teacher experiences at one of the more than 40 schools in western New York that serve as professional development sites.
Buffalo State is proud to have maintained continual accreditation for the past 25-plus years. The School of Education houses the largest teacher-education program in the region and sends more graduates into public education teaching positions than any other State University of New York campus.
