As United enters its second half-century, it is my responsibility and privilege to support our excellent faculty and academic staff individually and collectively to ensure that our ever-evolving programs:
- meet the needs of the changing church;
- are accessible to students both locally and at a distance;
- provide leaders with knowledge and skills for a variety of transformative ministries;
- uphold rigorous academic and professional standards;
- embody our charter to be ecumenical; and
- offer vital lifelong learning opportunities for both clergy and laity.

a multiplicity of theological voices, including some that
are not well-represented in our immediate community.
