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.
