Supplementary Calendar/Student Handbook 2016-2017
In July of each year, a Supplementary Calendar is released with new courses, policies, fees, and dates that were not available when the Academic Calendar was written, as well as serving as VST’s Student Handbook with up-to-date policies and procedures for VST academic and community life.
Theological Field Education Handbook
Field education placements at VST are designed to be mutual learning experiences in which students, mentors, and the School’s faculty establish a teaching and learning network. Although our backgrounds in ministry and our levels of engagement in a student’s placement may vary, each of us is engaged in the teaching and learning process. St. Paul’s image of the body of Christ, one with many complementary parts, commends itself to theological field education. We are mutually accountable to God and to one another. VST strives to develop an educational experience in which dialogue fosters a respectful learning environment. Posing questions, offering insights, giving encouragement and direction are the norm. The TFE Handbook is designed to assist students in their experience and planning of field education.
