The Very Rev. Kurt H. Dunkle, dean and president, gives an update on General Theological Seminary’s standing with the Association of Theological Schools:
Our normal re-accreditation cycle was originally scheduled for 2015, and the preparatory steps were underway when the fall, 2014 events occurred. After a meeting with many members of the administration, faculty, students, and board in December, 2014, ATS extended the re-accreditation process and continued the full accreditation of General through July, 2017, all with no “notations” (ATS-speak for an institutional insufficiency). The regular process which was underway in the fall of 2014 will now take place in late 2016/early 2017.
At our request, ATS representatives will receive reports from us and will meet with representatives of GTS late this fall to discuss (1) our faculty, (2) our sustainable educational model; and (3) our ThD program.
