The most recent data provided by member schools reveal significant statistics regarding tenure and part-time faculty positions. The implications of these data will vary from school to school, but leaders can engage in discussion around the issues using a few simple questions.

- to support the vocation of theological educators,
- to address dramatic changes in faculty roles and work, and
- to help faculty develop as leaders in their institutions.
