Each year FTE convenes its Doctoral Fellows for a learning event that is designed to:

  1. cultivate a community of mentoring,
  2. address critical developmental needs for students at different stages, and
  3. create space for clarification of vocational and professional direction.

The 2013 conference, entitled, Exploring the Edges of Theological Scholarship, will take place June 6-9 on the campus of Chicago Theological Seminary. Through constructive dialogue, site visits and workshops, this gathering will invite doctoral students to critically reflect on their own scholarship and vocation in light of the shifting landscape of the church and theological education.
