An NCATE-Approved School of Education Self-Study on Diversity: Faculty and Student Perceptions
Warren, Susan R.; Pacino, Maria A.; Foy, Tami; Bond, Torria
Educational Considerations, v38 n2 p36-42 Spr 2011
Accreditation bodies for institutions of higher education like the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) require colleges and universities to create campus climates and experiences for students that foster diversity. In particular, schools of education have the responsibility to prepare K-12 educators to support diverse learning communities. This article describes a self-study conducted by the authors for the School of Education at Azusa Pacific University, a private, faith-based institution, on faculty and student perceptions about diversity as the School prepared for NCATE reaccreditation. To that end, this article is divided into four sections. The first provides the background and rationale for the self-study which is followed by a description of the research methods used in the second section. In the third section, results of the analysis are presented. The article ends with concluding observations and recommendations. (Contains 1 table and 8 endnotes.)
