The mission of the council is to strengthen the School of Theology community by:

  • Connecting with alumni in their diocese and nearby areas to offer support and share Sewanee updates.
  • Reaching out to current students to provide encouragement and assist in networking.
  • Informing parishes in their diocese about Sewanee and increasing support for the 1% for Theological Education Fund.
  • Welcoming alumni back to the Mountain for our annual Alumni Lectures & Homecoming and other on-campus events.
  • Making a personal gift to the School of Theology's annual fund and urging others to give.
