The Department of Education takes pride in being innovative in our approaches to teaching and learning and serving the surrounding community. In addition, we are proud of our exemplary faculty and high-quality degree programs. We are committed to preparing educators who are able to ensure that all students regardless of ethnicity, gender, or other personal characteristics are afforded the opportunity to achieve their full potential. Our diverse enrollment has students from India, China, Taiwan, Korea, and a host of other countries. Enrollment of ethnic minorities, including African-Americans, Asian-Americans, Latinos, Hispanics, and Native-Americans, make up a large percentage of the post baccalaureate and graduate learning communities.
The Department of Education is preparing for state (California Commissionon Teacher Credentialing) and national accreditation (NCATE/CAEP) in 2013-14. As with all acreditation processes, it is a consistent effort to engage in continuous improvement. LIke the public schools, Cal Poly Pomona's Department of Education as well as the entire college continuously examines and reflects upon the the inputs (courses, field experiences, etc.) and the outputs (candidate learning outcomes and the impact on K-12 students and the community).
