Create Conditions for Scholars of Color to Thrive: 2018 Doctoral Consultation Report

Are we measuring what matters? Are we asking the right questions? How might we begin to ask questions of our field and institutions that are not only concerned with whether people of color increase numerically, but that also call our attention to whether these growing numbers of students and scholars are thriving vocationally?


A report on the 2018 Doctoral Consultation held in Denver at the Iliff School of Theology, where FTE gathered 54 participants representing various parts of the theological education system. This included accreditation institution staff, staff members of philanthropic organizations, presidents of theological schools, deans, directors of doctoral programs, faculty of color, doctoral students of color, partners in theological education, and leaders and consultants who work in inclusion and equity. FTE sought to experiment with how we work with partners to come to new insights on the question, How do we create conditions for scholars of color to thrive?
