The Accreditation and External Reporting Office (AERO) provides critical data and administrative support to inform the decision-making process and to promote continuous programmatic improvement within CEHD.
What We Do
The Accreditation and External Reporting Office (AERO) manages all external reporting for the College of Education and Human Development (CEHD). This includes Federal and State reporting, as well as accreditation. We compile reports for many different sources interested in how the college is set up, what the college is doing, and how well it is doing. These reports not only inform the external sources, but also our internal continuous improvement.
The Accreditation and External Reporting Office handles many aspects of the clinical practice/field experience component of programs in the CEHD. These include, but are not limited to, candidate applications and paperwork, university supervisor training, placements, the internship handbooks, and school division relations. Evaluations, fiscal paperwork, and demographic data related to clinical practice also flow through this office.
The Accreditation and External Reporting Office coordinates multiple aspects of assessment for the CEHD. We work with programs to enter assessment data into TK20, as well as generate and submit program reports analyzing key assessments. Unit-wide assessment also includes surveys of graduates and employers.
