Honorably I was invited as a member of committee of ATS’ campus visitation. Today is the first day of the visit and I met with wonderful colleagues who dedicated their time, energy, experience and expertise on helping seminaries and universities enhance the quality of Higher Theological Education. I already learned a lot from the initial meeting with colleagues and the leadership of the university. ATS’ mission stated as follow, “to promote the improvement and enhancement of theological schools to the benefit of communities of faith and the broader public.” I wish to be helpful for this process.
About ATS: More than 270 graduate schools of theology in the United States and Canada form The Association of Theological Schools. Member schools conduct post-baccalaureate professional and academic degree programs to educate persons for the practice of ministry and for teaching and research in the theological disciplines. These schools differ from one another in deep and significant ways but, through their membership in ATS, they demonstrate a commitment to shared values about what constitutes good theological education.
