Committee for Reconciliation and Diversity | The School of Theology | Sewanee: The University of the South

Committee for Reconciliation and Diversity

The School of Theology educates staff, students, faculty, and volunteers to function in a diverse environment by offering diversity workshops, programs, and conferences supported by the Gamaliel Foundation and the Kaleidoscope Institute with funding from Jesse Ball DuPont, Arthur Vining Davis, and the J. C. Flowers Scholarship Program.

Originally founded by Dean Emeritus William Stafford as the Committee for a New Day, the committee initially focused on historic issues of race and racism. The Committee for Diversity and Reconciliation is now expanding its engagement of faculty and students and broadening its scope of work to include a range of critical social issues, such as discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, class, and disability. Listening sessions this fall will determine the direction of the committee's work in the coming year.

Dr. Paul Holloway is the chair of the committee, which is comprised of students and faculty members. Holloway is the professor of New Testament and not unfamiliar with prejudice through the ages. Two of his books, Coping with Prejudice: 1 Peter in Social Psychological Perspective (Tübingen, 2009), and Women and Gender in Ancient Religions (Tübingen, 2010), deal with issues of prejudice in early Christian context.

The Committee’s Charge

“This is a standing committee of The School of Theology. It is charged to deepen the education of this community concerning the sins of prejudice and discrimination based on such things as age, class, disability, ethnicity, gender, race, and sexual orientation. In the context of God’s creation and reconciliation of humankind it seeks to:

  •     develop and implement ways to foster a change of mind and heart in and beyond this community
  •     widen the presence and participation of under-represented groups throughout The School of Theology
  •     promote changes to our structures and culture so that we may be a more adequate sign and instrument of God’s reign.”

Formation

Priestly formation is in itself an exercise in diversity training, one that lies at the heart of the residential theological experience in Sewanee. Living in close community with a varied student population prepares priests for full engagement with the diversity of today’s Church and the modern world.

Field Education

Sewanee provides many opportunities to engage with diverse ministry experiences despite its relatively isolated geographic location. Students can take advantage of the many options in cities across the country or they can choose a small local country parish or travel to nearby Chattanooga or Nashville for a big-city experience.

School of Theology Committees | The School of Theology | Sewanee: The University of the South

School of Theology Committees

Committee for Diversity and Reconciliation

This is a standing committee of The School of Theology.  It is charged to deepen the education of this community concerning the sin of racism and ethnic exclusion, in the context of God’s creation and reconciliation of humankind; to develop and implement ways to foster a change of mind and heart in and beyond this community, including change in structures and culture; to propose concrete ways to widen the participation of under-represented peoples in this community, so that it may be a more adequate sign and instrument of God’s reign.

Mission Committee

This committee plans, coordinates, and carries out service events through which members of the seminary community can witness to and live out their call to proclaim the Good News and to share their resources of time, money, and talent with persons in need.  Projects frequently are responses to requests from Episcopal communities in Africa and Latin America.  The committee also sponsors educational events to inform students about vocational opportunities in foreign missions.

Christmas Craft Fair

Attention all crafters (and bakers too) in the seminary community!

The proposed date for this year's School of Theology Christmas Craft Fair is Thursday, Dec. 4, and will take place in the lower level of Hamilton Hall outside the refectory. The fair will run from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. to give everyone plenty of time to shop. While there is no "booth fee," 10 percent of each booth's revenue will be collected and sent to Episcopal Relief & Development … a great way to "give back!"

If you are interested in participating, please contact Anderson to let her know the following:

Name
Email Address
Cell Phone Number
Type of Craft
Table & Chair Requirements
(Tables available are the long, narrow tables that are used for bake sales and PMO fundraisers)

Volunteers are also needed to help with:

1. Set-up
2.  Advertising (putting posters up around campus and around town)
3. Clean-up

Philippa Anderson (spouse  of Kemper Anderson, T'15), is the fair facilitator. Anderson is looking for a volunteer from the junior or middler class to asssit with this year's fair and coordinate next year's.

Parents Morning Out | The School of Theology | Sewanee: The University of the South

Parents Morning Out

The Parents' Morning Out (PMO) program is offered to the staff, faculty, and students of The School of Theology.  This is one of the many services of the School to help members of our community adjust to life on the mountain more easily. This program is operated by a Parent Advisory Board that is appointed under the provisions of the Executive Committee. Parental participation is not only encouraged, but crucial for the livelihood of the program.  

At Parent's Morning Out, we strive to create a Christian learning experience that is warm, caring, and loving for students and teachers alike. We encourage growth through play and games where exploration of new materials, concepts, and skills are introduced and reinforced.  PMO is a place where a child learns confidence and a love for learning.

Location

The PMO facility is located on the campus of The School of Theology on the bottom floor of Hamilton Hall. This location is central to most classes and events of the school. Our room is filled with bright colors and active learning centers. Numerous windows give plenty of sunlight, creating a healthy learning environment.

Registration

Enrollment of children at Parent’s Morning Out is available to the staff, faculty, and students of the seminary. Any remaining openings will be offered to community members who have contacted the director to be placed on a waiting list.

Registration forms are available in May. In order to reserve a space for a child, returning students, faculty and staff must return registration forms with a nonrefundable $25 registration fee by June 30th. Incoming Juniors to the seminary must return registration forms and fees by July 30th. Other parties may return registration forms and fees as early as possible. Available spaces will be offered to children outside of the community on August 1st.  Parents who are interested in enrolling their children after this date must contact the director for registration possibilities.

A Parent Orientation will be held in late August. The parents of registered students will be contacted by the director and informed of the meeting date and time. The director, teachers, and various board members will be available for discussion and questions.  At this time parents will complete emergency information forms, general information forms, and turn in shot records. Initial tuition payments will be due at this time as well as a nonrefundable supply fee of $25.

The Parents’ Morning Out is scheduled to open on the Tuesday of the first full week of classes and will operate Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. throughout the school year, following The School of Theology schedule of vacations and breaks.   

Tuition

Tuition paid by the semester must be paid by the first day of classes each semester.  Tuition that is paid monthly must be in by the first Thursday of each month for that month. Paying by the semester or monthly gives your child priority and secures his/her spot from month to month. Refunds are not given for days the child does not attend and the days will not carry over. Delinquency or continued tardiness of payment may result in the removal of your child from the program. 

Method of Payment

Tuition may be paid in cash or by check. Checks should be made payable to SOT / PMO and include your child’s name in the memo.

Refunds

Refunds will not be given regardless of the reason, including withdrawal, after a trial period of two consecutive weeks.  

Fee

Non-Seminarians
  • Semester $330.00
  • Monthly (Tues. & Thurs.) $90.00
Seminarians
  • Semester $290.00
  • Monthly $80.00

Parent Rotation & Participation 

Parents will be asked to provide a healthy snack for the entire class on a weekly, rotation basis.  Parents will also be asked to provide snacks/decorations for at least one school party during the year (i.e. Halloween Party, Christmas Party, etc.).  There will be a sign up sheet at orientation. Because PMO depends on fundraisers to make room improvements and curriculum purchases parents are also expected to contribute throughout the year.

Hours

The PMO hours are 8 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday.  Pick up will begin at 12 Noon and will end at 12:15 p.m. 

Parents’ Morning Out will accept children no earlier than 8 a.m., and we ask that children arrive no later than 8:45 a.m.   Children must be escorted in and delivered to a staff person in charge at that particular time.  All children must be signed in by the person dropping them off.

Parents’ Morning Out will close at 12:15 p.m. Children must be picked up on time.  A late fee of $1.00 per minute will be charged for late pick-ups.  Children must be signed out by the person picking them up.

Sewanee Speak | The School of Theology | Sewanee: The University of the South

Sewanee Speak

Abbo’s Alley is a cultivated nature walk that crosses South Carolina Avenue.

All Saints’ Chapel is the University’s main center for worship and the spiritual center of the campus. Although the building is of cathedral-like stature, a cathedral refers to a place where a bishop presides and because there is no bishop at All Saints’, it is technically a chapel.

BC is the abbreviation for Bishop’s Common, the student union and home to a variety of offices, The Tiger Bay Pub, and the Student Post Office.

COTA (pronounced “coat-ah”) is the acronym for the Chapel of the Apostles, the seminary chapel. This acronym is used by everybody except for the Dean, who won’t!

The Cross is the large white war memorial cross at the end of Tennessee Avenue that overlooks the Valley (toward Cowan and Winchester). It is a favorite sunset-watching spot, and the Perimeter Trail goes right through the spot as well.

The Domain is the campus plus the areas controlled by the University, approximately 13,000 acres. The University owns all the land on the Domain but leases parcels to people who own homes or businesses.

Downtown or the Village refers to the business area of Sewanee. There is a bank, post office, gas station, coffee shop, art gallery, a couple of restaurants, a frozen yogurt shop, salons, gift shops, a bicycle shop, and the electric utility office.

EQB, or Ecce Quam Bonum, is the University motto. The translation is “How good it is” shortened from “How good it is when brethren dwell together in unity” (Psalm 133). The EQB also refers to a club and meeting room located near the Telecommunications Office.

Lost Cove is a lovely piece of land of 3,000 acres jointly owned by the University and The Land Trust for Tennessee. This area is managed by Sewanee and used for both academic and recreational purposes.

Midway (so named for being mid-way between Sewanee and Monteagle) may be reached by turning the opposite way from the entrance to St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School. St. James’ Church and the Midway Market are located in Midway.

OG is the abbreviation for The Order of Gownsmen, the University’s honor society. Following British academic tradition (Sewanee is modeled on Oxford University in many ways), faculty wear academic gowns while lecturing. Undergraduates are inducted into the Order of the Gownsmen by reaching a certain GPA. All seminarians are members of the Order of the Gownsmen by virtue of matriculation at The School of Theology. Seminarians wear their academic gowns on Wednesdays.

Otey is the shortened version of Otey Memorial Parish, the only Episcopal parish located on the Domain, named after one of the Sewanee’s founding bishops.

PMO is Parent’s Morning Out, the childcare program at The School of Theology, offered two days a week.

PPS is Physical Plant Services, the folks that keep this place looking nice and in working order.

Proctor's Hall is not a building. It is a rock along the Perimeter Trail and a road name.

SAS is short for St. Andrew’s-Sewanee School, a private Episcopal school (grades 6-12, boarding and day).

SES is short for Sewanee Elementary School, the only public elementary school in Sewanee (grades K-5).

Shakerag Hollow is a hiking area along the perimeter trail to see wildflowers and many other beautiful sites. (Although the flowers are beautiful, it is forbidden to take any of the plants. So, do resist the urge to take them home with you!)

S of T, is the shortcut for The School of Theology.

SPO is the Student Post Office, located in the BC (see above). Pronounced “spoe.” SPO is used as a noun (“Take these to the SPO.”) or as a verb (“I’ll SPO it to you.”).

St. Mary’s is an Episcopal convent just off the Domain. It is also a retreat and conference center.

SUT  is the Sewanee Union Theater on South Carolina Avenue, across from All Saints’ Chapel. The SUT shows second-run movies on Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights for $3.00 admission, and older, often artsy movies on Thursday nights for free. All shows are at 7:30 p.m. (Yes, it’s just one movie at a time, one screen, one room.)

The Gates are the University’s gates located on Highway 41. There is a student tradition to touch the ceiling of your car as you drive out the gates to grab an angel to protect you until you return to Sewanee. The story of the Sewanee angel is available for sale at the Lemon Fair, one of the gift shops downtown.

The Messenger or Sewanee Mountain Messenger is the weekly local newspaper.

The Mountain refers to the entire area on the plateau.

The Pig is the Piggly Wiggly grocery store in Monteagle, the closest grocery store to campus.

The Valley is the portion of Franklin County that is not on the Mountain, including Cowan, Winchester, and Decherd.

V-C is short for the Vice-Chancellor. The Vice-Chancellor position at Sewanee is equivalent to the President position at most universities. Because Sewanee is owned by the Episcopal Church, the Chancellor of the University must be one of the bishops from one of the owning dioceses. The chancellor performs ceremonial functions and is the formal head of the University, but remains in his or her diocese as bishop and thus does not function day-to-day at the University as a university president would. The Vice-Chancellor is responsible for ensuring that the University functions according to the University Ordinances as dictated by the Boards of Trustees and Regents, concentrating on the overall strategic plans for the University and major fund raising.

The Woodlands is the University housing development located off Roarks Cove Road where most seminarians live. It is also sometimes referred to as Fertile Acres because of the rate at which the population of seminary children grows each year.

Yea, Sewanee’s Right! is the University cheer. The full cheer is “Tigers! Tigers! Leave them in the lurch. Down with the heathen, up with the church. Yea, Sewanee’s Right.”

Life on the Domain | The School of Theology | Sewanee: The University of the South

Life on the Domain

A Special Place

“The Mountain,” as Sewanee’s home is sometimes called, is known for its serenity and panoramic beauty. Located in Sewanee, Tennessee, in the heart of the Southeast, its wooded trails and long views into the surrounding countryside are ideal for spiritual reflection. But the benefits of the School’s location are more than atmospheric. Here, you will find an affordable cost of living as well as a close community—founded on cooperation, interdependence, and mutual support. Seminarians, faculty, and staff not only join in an academic setting, but interact as neighbors and friends. The town of Sewanee, with a population of 3,000 in walking distance from campus, has a range of convenient amenities—from gourmet coffee shops to public parks to a Barnes and Noble bookstore. You will find additional restaurants and shops in neighboring Monteagle. And for urban opportunities, Chattanooga, Huntsville and Nashville, are all within a 60-90 minutes drive.

A Welcoming Community

At The School of Theology, you are welcomed into a nurturing residential community of about 100 students from Episcopal dioceses across the United States and around the world. Men and women ranging in age from their mid-twenties to mid-fifties, single and with families, come from diverse career backgrounds to share a commitment to become leaders and missionaries of their faith. As part of this community, you will enjoy the fellowship of others on a path toward spiritual and intellectual growth—joining together in retreats, in community worship, at meals and parties, and in special interest organizations and activities to engage with the world and share your mutual journey. With a choice of houses and apartments rather than dormitories, you can expect to find comfortable accommodations and beautiful surroundings within walking distance of the School.
