Felician College School of Education Nationally Accredited

Felician College in Lodi, NJ, is pleased to announce that the School of Education has received accreditation for its undergraduate and graduate teacher education programs for seven years under the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) quality principles. TEAC supports the preparation of competent, caring, and qualified professional educators through an evidence-based accreditation process.

“The accreditation of our School of Education is a reflection of the excellence of our program and the dedication of our faculty,” said Dr. Anne Prisco, president of Felician College. “Our clinically-rich program is designed to develop personal, intellectual, and professional qualities that are essential for excellent, caring, highly competent teachers.”

The Felician School of Education, with more than 200 candidates at the undergraduate, post-baccalaureate and graduate levels, develops cutting-edge educators by combining education theory with practical teaching experience. Intensive field experience is a hallmark of the program, with students spending an entire day each week in real classroom settings beginning in their freshman year of study. This hands-on approach provides students with a deeper understanding of how children learn and familiarizes them with the challenges facing education in our society today. As a result, for the past three years, an independent panel of educators has chosen a Felician student as a State of New Jersey Distinguished Student Teacher.

Dr. Rose Rudnitski, dean of the School of Education, explained that in addition to graduating excellent teachers, Felician graduates reflect the College’s Franciscan mission.

“The School of Education faculty, staff and students reflect our Felician/Franciscan values in all that we do,” she said. “Our values for compassion, justice, peace and transformation are embedded in our minds and hearts and enrich our relationships. I am very proud of our accomplishments, but most of all, I am inspired by our deep sense of spirituality and respect for all people.”
