Asbury Theological Seminary
In June 2013, SAIACS and Asbury Theological Seminary (Kentucky/Florida, US) signed a Memorandum of Understanding to facilitate greater partnership between the two institutions. The partnership involves student and faculty exchange, resource sharing, and joint classroom interaction.
In May 2015, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between SAIACS and Laidlaw College (Auckland, New Zealand), to facilitate cooperation over several research initiatives: including encouraging exchange of doctoral students, providing mentors for each other’s doctoral student work, and working towards faculty from each institution spending time on sabbatical projects at SAIACS or at Laidlaw. The Laidlaw library resources will also be made accessible to SAIACS.
