Welcome to the Student Council of Karen Baptist Theological Seminary. In addition to the faculty which looks after the over-all management and administration of the school, there is also Student Council which serves as the governing body of the students themselves. For the cooperation of the student body and faculty, the Student Council represents the student body.
Six Working Committees
For the better KBTS community, the Student Council has six working committees: Athletic and Social Committee, Finance and Messing Committee, Literature and Culture Committee, Evangelism and Music Committee, Campus Beauty and Cleanliness Committee and Campus Discipline and Security Committee. All the six committees are working hand in hand for serving the KBTS community.
Each committee is empowered to make decision and conduct its programmes within the framework of the Student Council’s constitution. It is undeniable that this Student Council is very effective since every student is thereby given the opportunity to prove himself or herself in leadership, social dealing, administrative and financial trustworthiness, emotional and spiritual maturity, and social welfare among themselves and students from other theological seminaries.
