  4. Community Field Placement I and II have now been combined as INCD 7513 which is offered in the FALL through WINTER semesters each year. Students may contact David Skene (daveskene@gmail.com) at any time to begin planning their Field Placement which will generally begin with time for planning in the Fall Term followed by completion in the Winter Term.
  5. BIBLE 6503 Community Models in Scripture replaces both NT Community Models and OT Community Models that were previously offered as two courses.

NAIITS - An Indigenous Learning Community
NAIITS (formerly North American Institute for Indigenous Theological Studies) is one of two divisions of Indigenous Pathways, a non-sectarian organization dedicated to working together with the Indigenous community to develop and articulate Indigenous perspectives in theology and practice. We encourage Indigenous learning styles and world views in our instruction as we facilitate the development of a body of written work addressing biblical, theological, and ethical issues from within Native North American and other Indigenous perspectives. We do so in concert with partners of other ethnicities whom we have invited to speak into this context. NAIITS currently has five degree program partnerships offering undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate programs.
