While many of RTS’ core educational systems continue to serve students well, new challenges and methods of teaching students have grown in ways that improve specific functions and institutional processes. The Strategic Planning Initiative (SPI) has been designed to align all aspects of the seminary experience in a student’s lifecycle. OneRTS is committed to the students of the Church, and every effort is made to enhance, support, and advance the formation of servants of the Word of God.
In the classroom, learning management systems and engagement technologies support quality teaching; in enrollment and institutional development, customer relationship management (CRM) tools optimize the processes for recruiting and outreach; in the world of student success and achievement, personalized advising and mentorship are designed to promote student advancement in their degree program. Mobile apps and media outreaches expand the influence of RTS and smart technologies enhance the campus experience. The SPI will also build dashboards and analytics suites to promote operational efficiencies along with digital document management software for compliance purposes at every level.
When faced with the challenges of improving access for students, sustaining the work of the seminary for future generations, and growing the institution’s endowment, strategic alignment across the campuses is critical.
OneRTS is the path toward a renewed focus on Serving the Church to the Glory of God.
