Kepler began as a dream to improve the educational opportunities for astrologers. Originally, this took the form of a 4-year college that included astrological studies embedded in a liberal arts program. The College included specialized study courses to present a survey of techniques from different cultures and different time periods.
Kepler would not have existed if it were not for the many people who have contributed to its development. This includes donors and volunteers as well as our Board, administration, faculty, staff and, of course, students. We thank you all.
After 12 years of academic offerings, economic realities meant that we could no longer keep the degree program open. But like the proverbial phoenix, Kepler has been reborn into a new format.
Our current governing structure uses a shared system of governance between the Board of Trustees and Administrative Governance Council.
The Board of Trustees's primary mission is to ensure the College has adequate resources to perform the College's mission and oversees matters of general policy relating to its mission, overall educational programs, general operations and strategic plannning.
The Board delegates to the other governing bodies the duties which lie in their areas of expertise.
The Administrative Governance Council is designed to ensure administrators coordinate on the implementation of administrative policies, to work with the instructors to design the overall curriculum, and to communicate this information to the Board of Trustees.
The individuals involved with Kepler College are a varied group, from administration to volunteers. We live throughout the United States and around the world. Some have over 40 years experience practicing astrology and others are relative newcomers. We all care about promoting quality education and professionalism.
Kepler College also gives a very special thanks to our donors, without whom Kepler College would never have opened.
