Boards are striving more than ever toward a higher level of performance.

The demands of the challenging environment surrounding most theological schools require it.

ElevatorGraphicA friend finds out that you serve on the board of a theological school. He is surprised, pleased, and curious.

Do you offer online classes? You must register in every state where students live

StatesChecklistIf you’re the institutional liaison with your state office of higher education, or with the Commission on Accrediting of the Association of Theological Schools (ATS), or with a regional accrediting agency, you know that there’s a deadline approaching: July 1, 2014.

If you have any kind of online presence that draws students from across state lines — and at least 112 ATS schools do! — then you should be prepared for it.
