The Association of Theological School and the ATS Commission on Accrediting staff are conducting business both in the office and remotely. If you have questions or concerns related to the business of the Association or of the Commission, please email the appropriate staff person.
The Association of Theological Schools and the ATS Commission on Accrediting offer resources and updates related to the Coronavirus. Regarding accreditation matters of Commission schools, we recognize the need for schools to ensure the safety and health of faculty, staff, and students while remaining committed to the quality of their educational missions. We continue to encourage schools to be aware of updated information from the Centers for Disease Control, the Public Health Agency of Canada, and the World Health Organization as schools participate in the common good by taking the necessary steps to contribute to public health and the safety of those within their schools. In-person visits to schools are expected to fully resume for academic year 2022–2023.
ATS has resumed hosting in-person meetings, on-site programs, and conferences with online or hybrid options available as necessary.
