Centers of Actuarial Excellence Evaluation Committee (CEC)
CAE program allows universities and colleges with outstanding actuarial programs the opportunity to be publicly recognized by the SOA for that achievement, and to compete for substantial SOA-funded grants for education and research. It is a key component in the SOA's plan to strengthen the position of the academic branch of the profession. CAE-designated universities and colleges are currently located through the U.S. and Canada as well as in Hong Kong.
The CAE Evaluation Committee (CEC) reviews applications for CAE status, conducts site visits, and awards CAE designations for new applicants. The CEC also reviews annual reports to monitor current CAE universities and performs full evaluations and site visits for CAE universities at five-year intervals.
