If you haven’t already become aware, Dr. Bryan McCabe, Director of the DTL degree, is organizing a new urban immersion in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania! From what I’ve seen of his schedule so far, this class will be one of our best immersion courses. If you haven’t already taken an Overture (now being called an “Immersion”), or even if you have and want to use one as an elective, check it out! Master’s students can also take this as an urban immersion, so I encourage all of you to consider taking the class. It’s still only half full (we top these classes off at 20!).
Dr. Claire Henry is teaching the class entitled “Mentoring Women in the Professions: Emerging Theories,” which I’m certain will be quite an engaging course. Examine the attributions, accomplishments and challenges of mentoring women in the professions.
And we once again offer our trio of courses on transformation in the cities starting with Dr. Bruce Jackson’s class, “Exegeting Your Community,” which continues with Dr. Kit Danley’s class “Asset-Based Community Development (ABCD) and Appreciative Inquiry (AI)” in the January to March module, and Dr. Mary Glenn’s “Engaging City Leaders in Christ-Centered Civic Renewal” in the April to June module. Don’t miss these powerful classes if you are in the City Transformation track of the DTL!
And there’s a new course being offered by a recent BGU graduate, Dr. Maria Pompea. “Healing the City Through the Arts” will examine the generative capacity of the redemptive arts to inform, inspire, and engage fullness of life within the global urban construct. Great as an elective for any degree!
