Diversity in Theological Education [with CD-ROM]. ATS Folio.
Association of Theological Schools in the United States and Canada, Pittsburgh, PA.
This folio is provided as a resource for addressing race and ethnicity in theological education. "Using the Folio" suggests ways in which the various contents of the folio might be used in a range of institutional settings. "Perspectives on Diversity" presents, in a newsletter format, several short essays on diversity in theological education. Faculty member profiles (Asian, African American, and Hispanic) provide specific, personal locations for entry into issues of diversity within theological institutions. Statistics on race and ethnicity provide data on racial/ethnic diversity within theological schools and within the general populace. Issue sheets are designed to be short, provocative entry points into discussion of issues related to tenure, hospitality, isolation, hiring, and curriculum revision. Seven cases illustrate ways in which institutions have come to work through issues of diversity. Finally, the "Do's and Dont's" sheet identifies a number of concerns regarding diversity and institutional change. An accompanying CD-ROM with all the contents of this folio is included. (EV)
