UTS News

December 24, 1998


Like the rest of our movement, UTS is experiencing many new challenges at this time in the Providence. True Father's expectation is that UTS will become self-sufficient and to hasten us toward that goal the financial support for UTS was drastically cut. However, 10 new students will enter in January and many plans for UTS development are underway. Following is a UTS news page that will be distributed every month to keep you informed about UTS.

True Father Visits UTS - November 17, 1998

True Father returned to America in mid-November mainly for the ribbon-cutting ceremony and dedication of the new Health and Sciences Building at the University of Bridgeport. However, on this November 17th visit to UTS he said that as he had invested so much in UTS he wanted to visit us first before going to UB. He went on to remind us of the original mission of UTS - that of revitalizing Christianity. He emphasized the importance of heart education, explaining that the Professor's needed to convey God's heart to students. Father also said that UTS should become the North American Chung Pyung Lake.

Making Closer Connections

During Father's recent visit to UTS, he emphasized that the Faculty and Alumni need to be largely responsible for recruiting new students and financially supporting them. Father's desire is for UTS to be totally self-supporting. In light of this we would like to set up an alumni list-serve so that we can brainstorm together ways to increase enrollment and funding for UTS. We're looking for an alumni volunteer to set this up- anybody out there? Please let Gillian Corcoran know (admisuts@epix.net)

Sacred Music

Dr. Sallyann Goodall returns from South Africa to teach "Sacred Music" A song of anticipation is in the air as UTS prepares to welcome back Dr. Sallyann Goodall. Two years ago Dr. Goodall taught "Arts in Ministry", a course which continues to inspire much spirited conversation and creativity. Dr. Goodall earned her Doctorate in Music at the University of Durban-Westville, S. Africa where she is currently head of the music department. Her course will be offered 3 days per week, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday beginning January 11th for 8 weeks.

Just contact the Registrar in writing or by e-mail and you will be informed of which courses you will need to take. This is determined by a comparison of current course requirements with the courses you completed.

Long Distance Learning

The long-awaited opportunity to take UTS courses via distance learning is in the process of being implemented. The following New Certificate Programs have been proposed: Certificate in Theological Studies, Certificate in Church Leadership and Management, Certificate in Unification Studies, Certificate in Counseling/Family Ministry. Each of these certificate programs will comprise of 5 to 7 courses. The certificate programs do not require an undergraduate degree. It is also being proposed that several of the certificate programs can be combined so that students could earn an accredited Master's degree (ie a Master of Religious Education, M.R.E. or Master of Divinity, M. Div.) completely through distance learning, with several one week intensives at UTS (pending special permission from our accrediting agencies). Most courses will be offered correspondence style, with mentoring relationships between Professors and students; e-mail communication and chat rooms for discussion and the possibility of some internet courses down the road. So far UTS has successfully offered one course, Sociology of Religion, (Spring '98) via the internet. The details are still being hammered out, AND WE WOULD LIKE YOUR INPUT. Please respond by e-mail to Gillian Corcoran at admisuts@epix.net or in writing to the Admissions Office, 10 Dock Rd, Barrytown, NY 12507 with your response to the following survey and any additional suggestions and interests.
