AILACTE Characteristics. A Report Based on the 2002 Professional Education Data System of the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education
American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education
The American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education (AACTE) is the sole national organization that represents the institutional interests of university-based teacher education programs. Specifically, AACTE represents more than 770 schools, colleges, and departments of education and affiliate organizations that produce more than two thirds of the nation?s new school personnel each year. One of the Association?s primary goals is to contribute to the knowledge base on teacher education by conducting surveys on topics of critical interest, publishing scholarly papers, and collecting information that assists users in the study of education policy, especially as it relates to the quality preparation of educators. In addition, AACTE and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) cosponsor the Professional Education Data System (PEDS), which annually collects and examines data on the productivity, demographics, and financial resources of AACTE and NCATE member institutions. This report provides selected data for the Association of Independent Liberal Arts Colleges AILACTE member institutions from the 2002 PEDS report, which collected data on the 2000-2001 academic year. Of the 662 AACTE members that completed the survey, 154 institutions (23.3%) indicated that they were affi liated with AILACTE. Data used for this report is based on these 154 institutions and is organized into four subsections: (1) Student Enrollment; (2) Degrees Conferred; (3) Professional Educational Faculty; and (4) Technology and Distance Education.
