Meinzer, Chris, Ed.; Merrill, Nancy, Ed.
This fact book is produced to assist leaders of theological schools in strategic planning, policy development, and institutional evaluation. It is based on information submitted by the 244 member schools of the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada. Thirty-seven of these schools are in Canada. Most of the members are formally affiliated with one church or denomination, and within this 80%, 7 of 10 are Protestant schools; the others are Roman Catholic or Orthodox theological schools. Half of the schools have enrollments of fewer than 206 students, and 8% are primarily Black, Asian, Hispanic, or significantly multiracial. The total enrollment of member schools in fall 2002 was 76,510. The tables and figures in this compilation contain data on institutional and student characteristics, including enrollment growth; student racial and gender composition; financial information on tuition, income and expenditures; and degrees awarded. (Contains 26 figures and 7 tables.) (SLD)
