College of Education and Human Services
The College of Education and Human Services prepares students to be effective educators. Rider was the first private New Jersey institution to hold the highest accreditation possible in teaching from the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education/Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation (NCATE/CAEP). This in turn offers graduates added value and recognition nationwide when seeking employment or admission to graduate study. The College has created partnerships with local schools, businesses, and government and community agencies so that students work collaboratively to develop high-quality programs. Professors value excellence in teaching, scholarship and service and serve as devoted advisors and mentors who relate well to each and every student.
