The mission of Community Programming at United
Theological Seminary seeks to sustain religious
leaders (clergy and lay) and, for the wider community, serve as a resource of theological inquiry, spiritual formation
and ethical development.
Whether you’re looking for Continuing Education credits or simply feeding your soul, add a United event to your calendar.
Fall Convocation and Spring Convocation are annual events at United. Fall Convocation formally opens the new academic year. Spring
Convocation is of special interest for alums, as well as the wider community, and provides an opportunity for the community to
gather, remember, celebrate and explore topics of interest. More...
hosts four on-campus lecture series, all of which are free and open to the public.
- The Susan Draper White Lectures in Women's Studies presents two lectures in the area of women in
religion, theology, and ministry. The lecture series is the major public event
offered through the seminary’s Women’s Studies program.
- The goal of the annual Multicultural Lectures is to continue
developing strong, meaningful relationships with communities
outside the cultural mainstream to enhance recruitment,
provide mentoring services and develop resources.
- The Gustafson Lectures in Biblical Studies bring
to campus an internationally recognized scholar in biblical
studies for the presentation of two original lectures. This lectureship occurs periodically.
- The purpose of the
Picard Lectures in Environmental Theology and Ethics is to explore questions and issues concerning
the state of the creation from theological and ethical
perspectives. The lectureship seeks to raise questions
such as the relation between our spiritual life and
the state of the natural world and the response of religious
leadership to the decline of the planet.
