Western Governor's Recognized for Quality by NCTQ

Press Release

June 25, 2013

Salt Lake City — The National Council on Teacher Quality (NCTQ) has recognized Western Governors University’s Teachers College for its quality in a new report, the “NCTQ Teacher Prep Review.” WGU was the only online university to be included in the NCTQ’s Honor Roll, which was based on ratings of more than 1,100 colleges and universities across the U.S. The NCTQ evaluated the teacher preparation programs of these institutions for alignment with national standards for content, pedagogy, classroom experiences, and outcomes, and based on these criteria, WGU earned three out of four stars. WGU was specifically recognized for its student teaching best practices.

Established 10 years ago, WGU’s Teachers College has 11,000 students and more than 10,000 graduates in 50 states. WGU offers 20 undergraduate and graduate level teacher preparation programs, with licensure available in all 50 states. WGU is the first all-online university to earn accreditation from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) for its teacher preparation programs. WGU’s Teachers College is the nation’s largest provider of master’s degrees in math education. Nearly 25 percent of WGU Teachers College graduates are math or science educators, many teaching in inner city and rural schools.
