Strom, Jonathan, Ed.; Aleshire, Daniel, Ed.
This annual compilation of data is based on information received from 232 member schools of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada. The membership consists of Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox theological schools, both university-related divinity schools and free standing seminaries. This edition reflects several changes from prior years: new accrediting standards that were adopted in June 1996 recategorized degrees; the Financial Accounting Standards Board mandated new accounting rules for schools in the United States; and technical and programmatic changes have enhanced accuracy and reliability of the data. Seventy tables and figures provide data for the following areas: (1) institutional characteristics; (2) enrollment, including breakdowns by degree, race or ethnic group, and gender ; (3) composition of faculty and personnel compensation, including data for race/ethnicity, rank, and gender; (4) finances, including data on tuition and fees, expenditures per student; and (5) development, which provides data on donations and gifts. The reporting period for some of the financial data is 1995-96. Appended is a list of denominational codes used to designate institutions. (CH)
