A New Direction for UMASCE

Recently, at the 2017 Consultation, the participants charted a different course for UMASCE.

UMASCE began in the 1970’s as a way for UM Scholars and scholars in UM schools to interact with staffs of the then Board of Education and the UM Publishing House. Over the years that interaction has decreased for many different reasons, but now there will be efforts to reinstate it, but in a different way—through the internet.

Beginning this Fall, Staff persons in Discipleship Ministries and the Publishing House will work with a UMASCE Transition Team to begin to set up online consultations open to scholars and other agency staff members. Details will come in future emails and on this website.
