A recent issue of Trusteeship magazine features an article by Peter Smith titled “How Should Boards Respond to Disruption.” The article was written primarily for boards of universities and colleges, but it goes right to the heart of what it will take to lead a seminary through the next 30 or 40 years.
Smith looks at the rapid changes now taking place in education, including new models, new pricing, and new ways of measuring outcomes.
