SHU’s Director of Undergraduate Teacher Education Sally Rae said she was pleased with the overall process and the outcome for both programs. “We are thankful for those at Siena Heights and the Lenawee community who shared in the two self studies and who helped prepare for accreditation,” said Rae, who also credited Dean of the Graduate College Dr. Anne Hooghart and former Graduate Teacher Education Director Dr. Kelly Cichy with their leadership during the process. Rae said the university received official word about its accreditation from TEAC Executive Vice President Diana Rigden.
