Standards of Quality

Faculty, staff, and students take great pride in our College. Our collective efforts are frequently recognized with awards both on and off-campus. We are committed to the ideal of education as a transformational enterprise.

UNC continuously works with the Colorado Department of Education and Colorado Department of  Higher Education, and partners with national organizations, to ensure our programs are of the highest quality. In the last decade we have earned several awards from national or regional bodies for academic program quality, including the Christa McAuliffe Award for Excellence in Teacher Education given by the American Council for State Colleges and Universities.

CEBS also has academic units and programs that focus on the behavioral sciences, including psychology, administration and leadership, and research methods.
