Calling for More “Than We Have Got Thus Far”

We should not wait forever for a more substantive response than we have got thus far. My skepticism and pessimism tell me that unless the pressure for reform is continually intensified, theological schools will go on doing business at the same old stand.


This review includes a historical statistical analysis of people of color in theological education from 1998 to 2016. The updated review of literature focuses on best practices for supporting people of color in the academy. The resources reviewed were all published since 2006, and represented fields across higher education—first targeting the humanities, then incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), and business and law. The review also provides thematic summaries and annotations of literary resources. Additionally, it incorporates findings from the 2016 FTE Doctoral Fellows Report on the status of FTE Doctoral Fellows who received fellowships from 1999 to 2016.
