The Council will explore, experience, and help create inter-religious community and will advise the BTI Staff and Trustees on ways to strengthen the student experience across BTI institutions. The 2016-2017 council will include two student members per school. All members will be expected to attend two meetings (one in each semester) and to support one event during the year.
Community – We met three times last year, including a retreat led by faculty from CIRCLE (Center for Inter-Religious and Communal Leadership Education at Andover Newton and Hebrew College).
Social – Along with students from the BU School of Theology, we hosted the first ever BTI social event with more than 40 attendees.
Faculty – We arranged for professors from EDS, BU and HDS to gather and preview the courses they will teach next year.
Conferences – The BTI co-sponsored and co-funded three student conferences with a total participation of more than 225 students from nine schools.
