Project Presentation, Culminating Conversation, and Approval
The Project presentation is the culminating experience of the DMin degree. It includes two parts:
A public presentation of the results of the research lasting about one hour;
A final culminating conversation with the Project Committee that is devoted to assessing the success of the project in terms of its own articulated research goals (as presented in the Project Proposal) and the standards of the DMin Degree Program, lasting between one and two hours.
The culminating conversation with the Project Committee should be scheduled with the Project Director, and the time, date, and location announced at least two weeks ahead of time by the DMin Director(s). The culminating conversation is open to other Iliff faculty and DMin students, but responsibility for final approval lies solely with the Project Committee.
During the culminating conversation, one of the following decisions is made by the Project Director and Committee on the DMin Project: 1) Approval without revisions, 2) Approval with revisions (with a due date for revisions), or 3) Resubmit Project (with a due date for resubmission). At the conclusion of the presentation, culminating conversation, and project approval, the Project Director, Project Committee members, and student must complete and sign the Project Approval Form and return it to the DMin Director(s).
