During and after Faculty Assembly, we had an onsite visitation from the European Council for Theological Education (ECTE) regarding the initial accreditation for our Advanced Diploma in Applied Theology (ADAT) programme (ECTE’s BTh level programme of 180 ECTS). The visit started out with a member of the ECTE team, Dr. Horst Born, joining us for Faculty Assembly to get to know us better and meet with several members of the faculty and board. The other evaluation team member, Dr. Karen Fulton, joined him the following week in Linsengericht, Germany as the leadership team met with them to answer questions and provide additional documentation. We are pleased to report that they are recommending to the ECTE council to move ahead with the accreditation of this new programme. We hope to hear the final decision of the council by the time our spring edition of the inTouch is produced.
