How are we doing? : the effectiveness of theological schools as measured by the vocations and views of graduates by Barbara G Wheeler ( )
1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This issue reports the results of the first-ever survey of graduates of theological and rabbinical schools in North America. The survey was sent to graduates from Protestant, Catholic and Jewish institutions who earned M.Div., M.A., Rabbinical or comparable degrees in 1995 and 2000. In addition, the Association of Theological Schools, the accrediting body for schools in the U.S. and Canada, provided data from their Entering and Graduating Student Questionnaires (ESQ and GSQ). In combination, these data provide answers to two crucial questions: 1) What do graduates do in the years after they complete their education and 2) How well do they think their theological training prepared them for their work? Generally, the news from this study is good. Large percentages of graduates assume the primary professional role for which their education prepares: leadership in a congregation or other religious organization. Attrition is fairly low. There are, however, causes for concern. Women graduates do not fare as well as men, and interest in congregational ministry is decreasing among recent graduates, especially among the growing population of younger students. Other positive findings include high ratings by graduates of their theological education, though practical training is not as highly rated as academic preparation."--P. [2] of cover

Great expectations : fund-raising prospects for theological schools by Sharon L Miller ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This report looks at the special challenges and opportunities that theological schools face in fund-raising. Analysis of data from schools that are members of The Association of Theological Schools show the growth, and in some cases decline, of donations over the last twenty years. As denominational and local church support of seminaries has declined, schools have become much more dependent on donations from individuals. Finding and befriending those donors has become central to a school's mission and survival. Institutions frequently mount special or capital campaigns to raise funds for their physical plant or to build their endowment. How much can a school hope to raise in such a campaign? Using data from eighty schools that have engaged in campaigns, some parameters are given that may prove useful for a school's predictions. Finally, through case studies of seminaries, this report suggests factors that contribute to a school's successful fund-raising."--P. [2] of cover
