This thrust covers the areas of doctoral studies, teaching competencies, and research for the academic development of the faculty among member schools. 

Library provides an essential support to the academic requirements of the institution for excellence. Under this thrust, the theological librarians are given opportunities for professional development. 


The sustainability of the institutional and academic degree programs of the theological institutions is fundamentally tied to strong leadership. This is done through continuing education of leaders who help occupy critical positions to achieve the aims and goals of the institution. 

Research, Publication and Writing are important components of education which reflect the quality of the institution and its public impact.
