Upcoming Events

Oct 12 to Dec 18

By registration—This online event is designed for academic deans in their first or second years of service at an ATS member school. Asynchronous course modules created by the ATS staff and synchronous sessions with the staff will provide new deans with important information and nurture development of the skills that will make their work more effective and fulfilling. It will acquaint new deans with the resources available to theological schools through ATS, facilitate connections among academic deans serving within the distinctive world of theological education, and continue the process of formation into the vocation of the academic deanship. #ATSNewDeans2020

By registration; This year, 2020, has been a year of reckonings in our nation. We can no longer ignore our racial sins, the novel Coronavirus that threatens our health, economy, and community life, nor the environmental degradation with the power to devastate the lives of future generations. These reckonings can seem like the end of days and, in many ways, they are the end of any vision of ‘normal’ life. They are particularly a wake-up call to people and institutions of faith, demanding that we radically re-envision our work to prepare the next generation of ministers for the church and society. On Tuesday, panel members will explore how they frame the educational situation for seminaries and theology schools this fall and how their institutions are meeting the 2020 reckonings. The workshops on Wednesday will focus on particular strategies for leadership or programs in the works, allowing participants to join the conversation about how not to waste the opportunity these reckonings present to us. #ATSLeaders2020

By registration; We are designing an experience that will include both asynchronous and synchronous components for financial officers of ATS member schools. We will be using Canvas to create a space for you to interact with one another and to access some preparatory material, allowing our time together to be most impactful. The Canvas modules will open on October 27, and you will be asked to spend a couple hours over a two-week period with this initial asynchronous phase of the conference. We will then hold our synchronous portion of the conference via Zoom on November 10-11, from 2-5 p.m. ET both days. The synchronous portion will build on the preparatory material, and give you a chance to interact with presenters and cohorts of CFOs. #ATSCFOS2020

By registration. Many theological schools were already in the midst of restructuring and reimagining when sudden change was forced upon us by COVID-19. For staff and faculty, this meant fostering a learning community while navigating the demands of social distancing. For students, it has spelled the loss of an expected seminary experience. Change brings mourning in many guises to all constituents of our institutions; not surprisingly, we are all inclined to act out variously in denial and or blame. Drawing from categories first coined by Freud, this webinar explores ways student personnel might help a seminary culture make measurable moves from “acting out” towards “working through.”
