ATS Accreditation Standards: Brainstorming and Discussion
In June 2018, the ATS membership authorized the ATS Board of Commissioners to undertake a comprehensive redevelopment of the Standards of Accreditation and the Commission Policies and Procedures. The unanimous vote was based on a five-point rationale and was followed by a membership discussion of key questions and concerns. The current timeline envisions a two-year process (June 2018 to June 2020), with regular membership involvement. The first year (2018-2019) is called "a year of listening, researching, and reflecting"€ during which the Redevelopment Task Force will engage a wide variety of membership groups. More information about this process can be found on the ATS website.

This session will be an opportunity for Atla conference participants to speak into this "year of listening," both to give feedback on the current Standards and Procedures and, more importantly, to share ideas and engage in conversation about how future Standards could best support libraries, librarians, and the work of graduate theological education. Participants are invited to review the current ATS Standards as well as selected reflection papers prepared by Task Force members (to be made available prior to the conference) in advance of this session so that most of our time together can be spent in conversation and discussion.

This session will be offered twice. Interested participants should attend only one of the two sessions. Feedback on the redevelopment process can also be sent to the redevelopment email address noted on the ATS website. Other opportunities for engagement will also be described in the ATS and Atla newsletters.
