Fact Book on Theological Education for the Academic Year 1990-91.
King, Gail Buchwalter, Ed.
Using spring 1990 data from Association of Theological Schools' Annual Report Forms, this book provides information on parallel patterns and trends among theological schools for long-range planning and for visiting accreditation teams who seek to monitor a school's progress. The first chapter consists of seven tables describing institutions in terms of the most common identifying characteristics such as finances, personnel, and enrollment. The second chapter, "Enrollment," presents data on: applications, acceptances, and enrollees; admission policies; various enrollment combinations; total full-time equivalent enrollment patterns; comparable enrollments; total enrollment comparisons by degree types, by degree, gender and race; denominational affiliation; and completions. A third chapter, on personnel compensation, contains data on trends in the United States and Canada, vis a vis various benefits, by school size and accreditation status, by country, and by highest degree; the chapter also provides compensation comparisons by denomination of school, and shows distribution of administrative compensation as between university and nonuniversity affiliated schools. A final chapter, "Finance, Tuition Costs, Revenues and Expenditures," treats average Master of Divinity tuition charges, average doctoral charges, revenue and expenditures per full-time equivalent student, revenue sources, expenditure sources, educational and general expense per student, trends in financial data, ratio of surplus or deficit, and distribution of endowment assets. The bulk of the data is in tables each with accompanying explanation. (JB)
