New Faculty

When faculty members begin their work at theological schools, they inevitably face large tasks and significant adjustments. There are new courses to be created, new colleagues and students to meet, and new dynamics and institutional culture to explore and understand. In addition to those general demands of higher education are the distinctive challenges and opportunities of teaching in a theological school. ATS convenes periodic seminars designed for faculty who have completed their first or second year at a member school. These seminars address the unique vocation—both individual and corporate—of theological educators. Academic deans reflect on what they have learned from working with faculty, and faculty members share their experiences of surviving and thriving as theological educators.
