Get to know CAEP Staff and fellow EPP's

#CAEPCon provides a unique opportunity to interact directly with CAEP Staff, as well as peers to develop a better understanding of the
CAEP Accreditation Process and CAEP Standards. Previous CAEPCon attendees have enjoyed the opportunity to obtain a detailed explanation of the accreditation process, gain a greater understanding of the standards and being able to meet CAEP staff and fellow colleagues face-to-face. At CAEPcon you will find there is a sense of community and problem-solving. 
CAEPCon works to provide attendees with multiple perspectives at each presentation. At any given session, presenters may be CAEP Staff, board members, accreditation Councilors, site visitors, and/or members of EPPs with accreditation process experience.

Gain Vital Information and Resources

#CAEPcon provides interactive learning experiences through sessions that focus on important topics such as quality assessments, data literacy, diverse clinical practices, equity,  demonstrating program impact, developing a quality assurance system, and more!

Share and Collaborate

#CAEPCon provides educator preparation providers (EPPs) the opportunity to share innovative ideas, continuous improvement experiences, transformational practice, and evidence-supported successes with other EPPs. CAEPCon encourages educator preparation providers to network and share best practices while gaining new ideas.
