University of Colorado at Boulder

"Over the years, our licensing program has changed in ways that increasingly capitalize on the content knowledge of the teacher candidates. However, the strength of our program lies in the fact that we are very committed to the idea that you have to be properly trained before you go into the classroom, so students who go through our program come out with both content expertise and pedagogical expertise."

—Dean Lorrie Shepard,
School of Education


This collection of resources is designed to supplement the Self Study Report and provide the NCA consultant-evaluator team with specific source documents and information. The collection is still under construction and will be completed by February 2010.

The resources included in the Handbook of Accreditation Categories section are prescribed by the HLC Handbook on Accreditation and will be available to the NCA consultant–evaluator team during the Site Visit in February 2010.

The Institutional Snapshot conforms to NCA/HLC specifications. It is designed to give the site visit team a basic impression of CU-Boulder's overall scope and nature of operations during the two years preceding the on-site visit.

The Self Study Report Chapter Endnotes provide the necessary hyperlinks to campus resources referenced in each chapter of the Self Study.

The A to Z alphabetical list of links includes:

  • On-line publications and policies for the University of Colorado at Boulder and the CU system
  • University of Colorado at Boulder websites
  • On-line sources referred to in the Self Study Report
