Welcome to Millikin University’s School of Education Institutional Report for the purposes of NCATE initial accreditation. This Institutional Report describes how we meet each of the six NCATE standards. We are confident that the standards measure our effectiveness, according to the professional expectations of the nation’s teaching profession. Underlying the six standards is our conceptual framework, “The Journey Toward Excellence In Teaching and Learning”. We believe that this framework sets forth a vision of our unit and provides the necessary foundation to understand who we are.
