Accreditation Manual

MENATE’s educational values and accreditation standards are rigorous and robust expressions of what constitutes quality, or excellence, at various academic levels for theological education in the Middle East and North Africa, and how that quality can be described, evaluated, and reported. The standards and procedures in this Manual for Accreditation have been developed by the Accrediting Commission over a period of two decades to serve the needs of MENATE member schools.

Member schools have been consulted and have contributed in the process of developing these peer-approved markers of quality. MENATE through its membership of the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE) and dialogue with major global evangelical accrediting agencies can affirm that its standards and procedures, while not yet perfected, are comparable in quality to those found elsewhere in the world.
