College for Leadership and Theological Development (CLTD)
[formerly Institute for Theological and Leadership Development]

CLTD was founded in 1989 and was driven by the recognition of the importance of learning by doing. CLTD started with two flagship programmes, the B.A. in Theology and the B.A. in Guidance and Counselling. It was in the Theology programmes that CLTD's philosophy was most evident. Whereas it was the practice for Theological students to spend three or four years in training before being formally assigned to a Church, CLTD revolutionized that by having students spend three weeks in each month working in a church or other ministry context and one week in classroom activity over the three or four years of their period of study.

Mel Nathan College (MNC)

Mel Nathan College (MNC) functions as one of the two constituent Colleges of the International University of the Caribbean (IUC) and began operation in September 2004, as the tertiary arm of the Mel Nathan Institute for Development and Social Research (MNI).

MNI has operated as the human and community development agency of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands since 1978 and brings a mission-focussed approach to human and community development. Drawing on a popular education mode of programme delivery, MNI has prided itself in what has come to be appreciated as a practitioner's perspective on people empowerment and community development.
In operating as the tertiary arm of MNI, Mel Nathan College draws on this legacy of MNI and functions as the beneficiary of the MNI history and ethos.
