TheCollege of Education and Allied Professions

“To lead and support by excellence and innovation”


Courses in our majors push students to a higher level in their quest

for knowledge. Although Western Carolina University is accredited

by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS),

the university holds accreditation/membership in more than 50

other state and national associations. In fact, after visiting our

campus and critiquing all aspects of WCU, one member

of the SACS accreditation team remarked that

our motto, indeed, should be:

"Excellence with a personal touch!"
