Dedicated to educating reflective citizen leaders who are committed to the advancement of the organizations and individuals they serve.

Our commitment to the preparation of professionals drives our teaching and learning.

Founded upon cooperative relationships, socially responsible values and sensitivity to individual and community needs we produce professionals who promote:

  • Student learning — for Longwood students as well as those we serve in the community
  • Community involvement as a means to achieve the university mission of developing citizen scholars
  • Effective strategies that close the academic achievement and skills gap required to ethically serve people in a diverse society

Longwood University’s Educator Preparation Programs adhere to the rigorous standards set forth by the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP).

Longwood University is accredited at the initial- and advanced level by CAEP and all educator preparation programs are approved by VDOE. The standards set forth by VDOE and CAEP require annual and biennial reporting of accountability measures in order to maintain both individual program approval and accreditation.

Accountability measures include maintaining: national accreditation; candidate progress and performance on Board of Education licensure assessments; structured, integrated, and diverse field experiences; partnerships and collaborations with PreK-12 schools; and program impact.
