UPM-Asia's first university to earn Teacher Education Accreditation Council

Washington DC, May 7 - Universiti Putra Malaysia (UPM) became the first higher education institution in Asia to receive accreditation for teacher education programme from a Washington-based organization, the Teacher Education Accreditation Council (TEAC) recently

The recognition has equalized the teacher education programme at UPM with other TEAC-accredited programmes at several well-known universities in the U.S., such as University of Virginia, University of Nebraska, University of Michigan, Temple University and Rutgers University

Prof. Fauzi, said the accreditation process involved a comprehensive process that has been underway for three years to meet the standard criteria set by TEAC, the body which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation, U.S.A.

"Any university that has received this recognition must go through the process of monitoring by TEAC for five consecutive years to maintain the accreditation certification," he said
