Objective 1  

We will know we have addressed this imperative when PTS has established multidimensional relationships with 6-­‐8 strategically important global institutions.

Strategy 1
Identify potential institutions that offer the best opportunity to build and sustain relationships that benefit both the partner institution and the Seminary.

Strategy 2
In conversation with our partner institutions, develop strategies and models for collaboration that avoid the pitfalls of paternalism and colonialism. Successful overseas Field Ed placements provide one model of embedded learning; courses such as PR3280 Preaching in a Global Context (contextualized hermeneutics in India) provide another.

Strategy 3
Implement phased long-­‐term plans with each partner institution that include robust mutual assessment protocols.
