The establishment of a new site would include the following milestones and tasks:
A conversation between a church and SEU begins with a mutual connection and an initial conversation.
The prospective site will be presented to the leadership team by the vice president for institutional research and extended education. Pending approval, a formal Extension Site Partnership Agreement will be articulated and presented to the church for authorization.
Members of the SEU Network team will set up calls/meetings for site staff covering various topics.
Site directors are invited to multiple training opportunities both virtually and in person throughout each year.
Sites coordinate local promotional and recruitment activities.
All marketing (e.g., brochures, websites, advertisements, etc.) including SEU branding must be reviewed and approved by the SEU marketing department prior to publication.
At the beginning of the fall semester, all courses are created, faculty are assigned, students are registered, practicum documentation is submitted and courses begin. At this point, a student orientation should take place as an introduction to the program. Depending on the delivery model, a site visit may be conducted after the start of the program.
