The University of Hawai‘i West O‘ahu (UHWO) Bachelor of Education (B.Ed) degree, with concentrations in elementary, middle-level, and secondary education, is Leeward O‘ahu's baccalaureate-level teacher preparation program. In spring 2012, the elementary program achieved national recognition by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), and in spring 2013, the Division of Education (the unit) was accredited by the prestigious National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE).
Now in our 7-year accreditation cycle, the Education Division embraces a Continuous Improvement model, under the guidance of the newly reorganized accreditation body, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).
We welcome you to explore the CAEP folder, which contains current, on-going assessments of the unit and our candidates' knowledge, skills, and dispositions. Also available for your information are links to comprehensive data from the spring 2013 NCATE Electronic Exhibit Room.
