Wise Stewards: The Roles and Responsibilities of Boards in Theological Education

This article from In Trust outlines the essential components of governance for governing boards of freestanding seminaries, advisory groups that oversee university-related theological schools, and boards assisting church authorities. "Wise Stewards" describes the context of theological education today; outlines the chief elements of wise governance; serves as a guide for assessing both formal mandates and informal practices; and clarifies the relationships among boards, presidents, other administrators, faculty, and other constituents.

Governance leaders will find "Wise Stewards" useful for orienting new members or committee chairs, or for reviewing and repositioning the board's work. It may also be used to prepare for accreditation reviews by helping to identify strengths and weaknesses in governance. Discussion questions are included.
