Statement of Educational Effectiveness

Institutional/Educational Effectiveness Snapshot Academic Year 2016-2017

Winebrenner Theological Seminary serves God’s mission of reconciliation in changing the world by preparing servant leaders of the Lord Jesus Christ for effective ministry in the Church and the World. The faculty and staff of WTS are committed to providing an educational experience that meets this mission. The following reflects a snapshot of this demonstrated educational effectiveness using data based on the individuals graduating with Masters or Doctoral degrees in August 2017.

Graduation Rates reflect the percentage of graduates in the academic year who complete their program in 100% or 150% of their program or less. This is a standard approach to measuring this benchmark.

Capstone Success varies from program to program but is typically the percentage of graduates in the academic year who successfully defend a thesis or dissertation, give a final summative presentation, pass a licensure examination, or in some other manner demonstrate mastery of the program outcomes.

Employment Rates reflect the percentage of graduates in the academic year that are employed or have accepted offers of employment as of the date of graduation.

All educational effectiveness data is calculated by the Director of Institutional Assessment and Planning who can be reached at kathryn.helleman@winebrenner.edu for comments or questions.
