USF, Indiana Tech collaborate on education-degree program
Indiana Tech education majors will be able to complete their degrees and teacher licensure requirements through the University of Saint Francis in a collaboration agreement announced Friday between the two institutions.
Indiana Tech’s School of Education applied for but was denied accreditation by the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation, or CAEP.
As a result, the Indiana Department of Education told Indiana Tech it will be unable to license graduates to teach in Indiana after this academic year, university spokesman Brian Engelhart said earlier this month. He noted it doesn’t affect this year’s graduates.
