Shared Governance: An Institutional Game-Changer

Suspicion of shared governance runs deep in theological schools; as a consequence, faculty and administrators fail to understand the internal dynamics and external forces that affect the other’s decision-making processes. However, shared governance opens avenues to new perspectives, greater understandings and creative opportunities to advance the school’s mission, argues Rebekah Burch Basinger, a governance mentor at In Trust, a member organization that works to strengthen boards and governance in North American theological schools. In an article written for the organization's magazine, In Trust, Basinger proposes four key processes that advance shared governance; they can also inform denomination-level and local church-level governance.
