Title IX

Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 prohibits sex discrimination­—which includes sexual violence—in educational programs and activities. Students, staff, faculty, and other employees have the right to pursue education, including athletic programs, scholarships, and other activities, free from sex discrimination, including sexual violence, sexual misconduct, stalking and harassment. In this context, DTS understands that the term “sex” historically, textually, and logically refers to an individual’s immutable sex – either male (man) or female (woman)— as objectively determined by genetics or physiology present by or before birth.

Health Insurance

The seminary requires all students taking 6 or more credit hours per semester to carry health insurance for themselves and their immediate families. All master’s-level students enrolled in at least 6 credit hours and Doctor of Philosophy students enrolled in at least 3 credit hours are eligible to enroll in the student health insurance program offered through the seminary.

Faculty and Academic Advising

The seminary considers advising an integral part of each student’s experience. For ease of access, many student advising needs are met in one centralized location. The Advising Center staff help students make informed decisions in light of current life circumstances and future ministry possibilities. Faculty members mentor students, discuss ministry realities, and help students select appropriate electives. Academic advisors listen to the life circumstances and ministry goals of students. They then help each student select an appropriate degree and/or courses in light of these goals. Academic advisors also help students plan toward degree completion in light of life circumstances and seminary policies. Financial aid advisors provide guidance on how to pay for school.

Student Life

As we strive toward these commitments, we acknowledge our weakness and our constant need for God’s ongoing redemptive power expressed through his Spirit and fostered in the community of faith. When breaches of these commitments occur, we encourage the practice of repentance, confession, pardon, correction, and redemptive discipline when necessary.

DTS is committed to maintaining an environment conducive to learning for all students and a professional workplace for its employees; as such, we take active measures against discriminatory harassment, and sexual harassment, including any type of violence or misconduct.
