Upcoming webinars

 

The Association of Theological Schools and the In Trust Center are presenting (or co-presenting) three webinars in upcoming months that will be of interest to leaders of theological schools. The webinars cover student data, shared governance, and seminary finances and are designed to educate members of the board, faculty, and administration of theological schools on these essential topics.


ESQ Webinar: 2015-2016 Total School Profile Highlights

The first, “ESQ Webinar: 2015-2016 Total School Profile Highlights” is a free webinar presented by the Association of Theological Schools (ATS). The webinar will present highlights from the most recent Entering Student Questionnaire (ESQ), an annual survey of entering students administered by ATS. The ESQ collects demographic data from students, as well as information about how they came to seminary and vocational goals after graduation. According to ATS, the webinar is “designed for academic administrators and would also benefit faculty and board members who are interested in trends in theological education.”
