The findings indicated that some 43 percent held doctorates and that about 60 percent had received training in education at the advanced degree level. Ninety-two percent belonged to professional organizations. The results of this study are compared with national norms. The deans were also asked to name the 10 leading Christian colleges in the nation and, with the exception of one, all who answered included their own institution in the list. (AF)
