Statement from the Corporation of Queen’s College
(September 25, 2013)
The Corporation of Queen’s College met at the College on the morning of September 25, 2013 for their twice-yearly meeting. The governing body reviewed all aspects of the College’s life and ministry and joined with Students, Faculty, and Alumni Association members in a noontime Celebration of the Holy Eucharist before gathering for a shared lunch at the Parish of St Augustine where they continued their meeting into the afternoon. Over 40 persons attended both the Eucharist and the lunch.
The Corporation expressed gratitude for the continued teaching ministry of Queen’s College with part-time and distance programs such as the Associate in Theology and the Diploma in Theology and Ministry Programs continuing in 2013-2014. The members of Corporation gave thanks that the number of students studying at Queen’s College in the fall of 2013 is the highest for several years with 51 students registered. These numbers are expected to increase in January of 2014.
Following its meeting the Corporation wishes to announce the following key decisions:
1. Full-time residential training at Queen’s College will resume in September of 2014 following a one-year suspension to allow a comprehensive review of curriculum and programming. A report from the Committee for the Review and Renewal of Curriculum will be given to the Corporation in the spring of 2014.
2. Effective in January of 2014 all tuition costs at Queen’s College will be reduced significantly as follows: a three-credit-hour course will be $250 (from $420), a two-credit-hour course will be $170 (from $280), and tuition for the Diploma Program will be $200 per term (from $275). It is hoped that these reductions will make it easier for students to attend Queen’s College both part-time and full-time.
3. A search has begun for a Dean of Theology with the anticipated date of appointment of June 2014.
The next meeting of the Queen’s College Corporation will take place at the College on March 12, 2014.
