Take a Deep Dive into Student Diversity on Oct. 18

One of the most important—and sobering—findings of AACTE’s recent report, Colleges of Education: A National Portrait, is that those studying education at the undergraduate and graduate levels are not nearly as diverse as the students they will serve. Indeed, the only other large professional field with less diverse bachelor’s degree recipients is agriculture.

As the author of the report, I invite you to join me and your colleagues for a close examination of education students’ characteristics during the webinar, National Portrait Deep Dive on Student Diversity, on October 18, 2:00–3:00 p.m. You will find answers to questions such as:

  • What else does the report have to say about students completing undergraduate and graduate programs in education?
  • Do student demographics in other fields mirror those in education?
  • How does the student profile vary by type of education program?
  • What are the implications of these findings for the future of colleges of education and for the field?

In addition to reviewing the findings from the National Portrait, I will present additional analyses of national data on education students that were not included in the recent report. The webinar will include time for participant discussion and Q&A. It will also be recorded and available for future viewing.

This webinar is the second installment in a two-part series on Colleges of Education: A National Portrait. A recording of the first webinar on student enrollment trends is available on the AACTE website.

Join this important conversation on Wednesday, October 18 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. EDT.
