A Strategic Vision

In Spring 2010 the CDSP Board of Trustees initiated a bold process of strategic restructuring for CDSP.

“We are called to develop creative ways to shape and deliver theological education for the Episcopal Church, as the needs of the church and world for ministry continue to change. CDSP is uniquely suited to lead in identifying and responding to these needs.’

CDSP has a tradition of academic excellence as a founding member of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, as well as sensitivity to and rich ties with Asia, the Pacific Rim, and across the United States.

Our unique perspectives and resources call us to offer theological education that is broadly accessible, financially sustainable, and culturally relevant.

This strategic initiative represents the Board of Trustee's commitment to restructuring CDSP to live out this vision more fully.

A Strategic Change Task Force was formed and its first set of recommendations was submitted to the Board of Trustees in October 2011. This resulted in board action accepting the recommendations, with some modifications.
