Dr. Scott Jackson Dantley, associate vice president of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning and Professor of Science for Coppin State University, was hand selected by the National Association for Equal Opportunity in Higher Education (NAFEO) in conjunction with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA) to conduct a feasibility study for 25 Saudi Colleges of Education. He will also lead the science sub-division of the review. The engagement model of quality assurance was created by NAFEO at the request of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
As a noted accreditation evaluator with an extensive background in science education, Dr. Dantley will provide insight into the accreditation process and recommend, if necessary, improvements. He served as key evaluator for the College of Education’s state grant to conduct a review of a new developed Principal’s Institute to produce 25 new principals for the State of Maryland.
The first-time study will gauge the readiness of the Saudi colleges to meet the National Commission of Academic Accreditation and Assessment (NCAAA); local standards, and international standards set by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE). The NCAAA standards include “institutional context, quality of learning and teaching, support for student learning, supporting infrastructure and community contributions,” according to the NCAAA website.
