As a member of the Richmond Theological Consortium (RTC), Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond works in cooperation with the programs and activities of the RTC alongside member schools Union Presbyterian Seminary, and the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology of Virginia Union University (STVU).
The Consortium, established in 1969, provides students and faculty of each of the member schools access to the resources of the other institutions. The RTC schools are in very close proximity, making cooperation and fellowship natural and easy to facilitate.
The RTC offers many benefits to the member schools. A student enrolled in an RTC school may cross-register in courses for which he or she qualifies at any of the RTC institutions or may elect to participate in specially designed RTC courses jointly sponsored by all the schools. The students have full access to the library located on the campus of Union-PSCE and to the bookstore. An RTC newsletter keeps the community informed of campus life, intramural sports, and academic and chapel programs.
