College at Southeastern: A History

In 1994 the trustees of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) established the Southeastern Baptist Theological College to train young men and women for service to the Kingdom of God, later renaming it in 2008 as The College at Southeastern.

Former SEBTS Provost Bruce Ashford became dean of the college in 2009 and made several foundational changes, leading to new programs and curriculum. In 2013, Jamie Dew became the new dean of The College at Southeastern. Under Dew, the college continued to give students greater flexibility in their academic pursuits, most notably in the History of Ideas program and the creation of degrees specifically for students who are called into non-vocational ministry. In June 2019 Scott Pace was appointed as dean of The College of Southeastern.
