Institution’s Administration. I will establish a coordinated meeting of protocol

with the institution’s administration to include:

• Securing classroom space to conduct the CPEO training,

• Obtaining media outlets,

• Engaging college’s student body to distribute CPEO invitation flyers,

• Compiling summative report of first CPEO and sharing results with the

institution’s administration.

Students. Students are responsible for submitting an application and the

application fee by the deadline to attend the CPEO professional training. Students will

be responsible for completing all the prerequisites necessary to attend the CPEO

training. Additionally, students will be required to attend sessions all 3 days, be prompt

and on time for each session, remain for the entire sessions, and complete the reading

and all homework assignments. Students will be responsible to conduct and present in

class two pastoral care events using the verbatim format provided. Students will be

required to fully participate in classroom activities and assignments. Students are

responsible for completing and sharing the short session evaluations at the end of the

first two sessions and an overall evaluation at the end of the third session. All

evaluations must be candid when students share their assessment of the CPEO sessions.

A five-page integration paper will be required and excerpts shared with the group at the

last session. Students are responsible for creating and participating in the closing awards

ceremony by coordinating with the instructor. Students will receive a Certificate of

Basic Pastoral Care and Theological Reflection Skills.

I want to thank you again for participating in my research project. I will be transcribing
the recorded data. I will be interpreting the information we discussed tonight and I may
have some follow up questions. I would like to contact you in case I have questions will
that be acceptable? I really appreciate your assisting me in this project and my hope is
that the information you provided will assist the college in securing grant funding to
support a full-time CPE program.
