The MSU-IIT has firmed up its total number of Centers of Excellence (COE) to seven (7).
The College of Education (CEd) has been designated Center of Excellence in Teacher Education by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED), per CHED Memorandum Order No. 17, Series of 2016.
Based on Republic Act 7784, Teacher Education refers to the pre-service education, in-service education, and graduate education of teachers, in various areas of specialization. This means all the programs, undergraduate and graduate, offered by the college are accredited COEs.
The COE is valid from April 1, 2016 to December 31, 2018.
With this COE in Teacher Education, the CEd continues to be the leading institution of teacher education in Mindanao.
