And we welcome any United student who is Pagan-friendly/curious/adjacent. We meet on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month. Sometimes just to chat. And, on occasion, to gather in ritual.

    Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE)
    Information and Skill Building

    Every Monday at 12 noon CT

    If you’re enrolled in a degree program that requires you to complete one unit of CPE, these informational sessions will answer all of your questions. Prior to coming to UTS, Rev. Karen Hutt was a CPE Educator at four major hospitals in Chicago and most recently at the University of Minnesota Medical Center. She is currently leading a local CPE Program in Public Chaplaincy. Given the nature of the pandemic, programs will vary throughout the country. This will require you to have a coherent plan for your application process and site selection. All sessions will be informational based on the questions you bring. Get familiar with acpe.edu. Individual meetings: calendly.com/khutt
