Tools & Resources for Faculty & Staff


Here at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, we are able to provide every faculty and staff member with a copy of Microsoft Office 2013 through a seminary sponsored Office 365 online account.  The link below takes you to a document that explains how to install your copy on either your Windows based PC or Mac.  Please remember that you must uninstall the software if/when you are no longer an active faculty or staff member.
