Graduate Programs Teaching Initiative

Purpose: To enable doctoral programs in theology and religion to assess their preparation of Ph.D. and Th.D. students for teaching appointments. The assessment involved conversations with recent alumni/ae to explore the alignment between the preparation they received and the context in which they are currently teaching.

Description: 33 graduate programs were awarded $15,000 grants to host Teaching Initiative Gatherings at their school or at a site in close proximity. These gatherings involved 8-10 recent alumni/ae (graduated in the last 5 years and in a teaching appointment), the Dean of the School, Graduate Program Director, and 2-3 key faculty members. The Wabash Center provided each school with a consultant to help them design and lead the 2-day/1 night meeting and a Wabash Center staff person as an observer. The focus of the Teaching Initiative gathering was to explore questions of teaching preparedness with alumni/ae and key parties at the school.
