Accreditation

In 2013, after an evaluative visit by the Association of Theological Schools, our seminary was granted another seven years of accreditation. The evaluation put in place accountability mechanisms to report on seminary specific strategic planning, including special attention to a strategic enrolment plan; and further attention to show how degrees are continually re-shaped based on assessment of student learning. The evaluation also drew attention to the clear sense of mission evident in the Seminary, the depth of commitment to this mission by the faculty and staff, the strength of the library, and the engagement of the board and president in the strategic leadership of the school.
