Preparation Guidelines

The Facilitation Team

The successful facilitation team conducts renewal and wholeness experiences for their college community. The experiences vary depending upon the interests, resources, needs, and culture of the college, as well as upon the skills and qualities of the facilitation team.

Preparation of a team of facilitators to do the work of professional development in renewal and wholeness is an extended, interactive procedure. It is designed to ensure that both the prepared facilitators and their mentors in the Center for Renewal and Wholeness in Higher Education (CRWHE) are confident that the events offered in their college communities are consistent with the vision, mission, and values of CRWHE and the gifts of the facilitation team. To reach that level of confidence, CRWHE asks participating institutions to expect the process to take a minimum of two years of active work with new team members.
