Human Resource Directors’ Council

Columbus State University is committed to excellence in its educator preparation programs. Two important, indirect assessments integral to this commitment are required by CSU's national accrediting agency, the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP), Standard 4. Thus, the Council will initially focus on CAEP 4.3 Satisfaction of Employers and CAEP 4.4 Satisfaction of Completers.

In addition, it is the intent of this Council to provide assistance to both the school system and university as both strive to meet state and national accrediting requirements and standards.
