B. H. CARROLL THEOLOGICAL INSTITUTE OBTAINS CANDIDACY STATUS WITH ATS
B. H. Carroll Theological Institute has earned Candidacy status with The Association of Theological Schools (ATS). The Board of Commissioners of ATS during its June meeting in Pittsburgh voted to approve the Institute’s request to change from Associate status to Candidate status.
ATS maintains three membership categories: associate, candidate and accredited. Carroll Institute was granted Associate status in June 2014 and soon thereafter began the work necessary for Candidacy. This process included the preparation and submission of a readiness report (completed in January of 2015) and an on-site evaluation by commission staff (conducted in April of 2015). The institution’s work toward Accredited status will begin immediately and will include the preparation of a self-study report and the completion of an on-site review.
ABOUT THE ASSOCIATION OF THEOLOGICAL SCHOOLS
The membership of ATS currently includes 273 schools. These schools include Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Orthodox graduate schools of theology that reflect a broad spectrum of doctrinal, ecclesiastical, and theological perspectives within the Christian faith. The mission of ATS is to promote the improvement and enhancement of theological schools to the benefit of communities of faith and the broader public.
