    WILLIAMSBURG, Ky. (BP) -- Tuition rates will be cut 57 percent at the University of the Cumberlands for the 2018-2019 academic year under a plan known as "The Cumberlands Commitment."

    Tuition for on-campus undergraduate students will be reduced from $23,000 to $9,875 at the university affiliated with the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

Cockrum said. "We want all students to know that with Cumberlands there is a clear and affordable path to a college degree." Read More

    BREA, Calif. (BP) -- Gateway Seminary's Southern California campus in Brea, Calif., officially closed July 27, in anticipation of moving academic operations to the seminary's new primary campus in Ontario, Calif.

    The closing was marked with a ceremony attended by alumni, faculty and staff. It was the final step in Gateway transitioning its main campus from Mill Valley in Northern California to Ontario in Southern California. That move included a name change from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary to Gateway Seminary, as well as opening a new regional campus in Fremont that would continue the work the seminary began in the San Francisco area nearly 75 years ago.

    The story of the Southern California campus began 45 years ago, when former trustee Guy Rutland Jr. from Georgia approached Harold Graves, then president of Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, to ask about offering seminary classes in the Los Angeles area. He had an idea that opening a satellite campus would aid the churches in Southern California. Read More

    by David Roach, posted Wednesday, July 18, 2018 (5 months ago)

    From Southeastern in North Carolina to Gateway Seminary in Southern California, SBC seminaries are training students and faculty to recognize and deal with abuse, reemphasizing personal sexual morality and offering resources to those struggling with sexual sin.

    Southeastern has "raised the flag and heightened the alert," Akin told Baptist Press, "given the cultural trends that we're now encountering, given the technological world in which we live" where moral failings often are widely publicized. Read More
