BTI ADVERTISING POLICY: The Boston Theological Institute exists to “harness our collective resources to advance ecumenical relations, model good stewardship, strengthen our teaching and research, and more fully engage our community and the world.” As such, the BTI sponsors 1) Programs, 2) Supports activities in the schools and 3) Endorses events and activities appropriate to our constituency. As recommended by the BTI Board of Trustees, these three categories indicate a descending degree of financial and time commitment by the BTI office and its operations. The degree of sponsorship depends upon the number of supporting schools and centrality of programming to BTI identity and shared commitments. Please note that announcements with job opportunities are posted for up to a month and are normally removed either by the deadline provided, or a month after its posting!
