Want to Experience It For Yourself?
Envelop Yourself in the Arts
At United, theological education is about more than just academics; it’s about shaping a new reality, and artistic expression is one of the most powerful ways to explore what that might look like. Whether you consider yourself an artist or not, you’ll benefit from the infusion of art in everything we do at United. From ever-changing art displays across the campus to academic concentrations in Theology and the Arts, creative expression is an integral part of what makes United such a unique and vibrant place.
Meet Us at The Intersection
United has been a leader in exploring the intersection of theology, art, and social justice since its founding in 1962, and this exploration lives on today in The Intersection—where doing is a part of transforming ourselves and our world. The Intersection supports our curriculum by offering workshops, practicums, exhibitions, community events, and other artistic experiences.
The Intersection is:
- Vibrant—Igniting imaginations, enlivening beliefs, taking risks, and stirring the core of our spiritual lives through art.
- Collaborative—Connecting, interpreting, and channeling a living, flowing causeway of energy.
- Experiential—Nurturing creativity and compelling a response from both The Creator and The Witness.

Explore the Spencer Library
The Spencer Library resides at the heart of our campus for good reason—it’s more than just a collection of thousands of print and electronic resources. It’s a place to meet up between classes. It’s a place to study with your peers. And it’s a place to find answers, share ideas, and discuss differing viewpoints in a safe and welcoming space.
Experience Life in the Twin Cities
Grab a bite to eat before or after class at one of a dozen restaurants, bars, and cafes within a five-minute car ride from campus. Or, heat your meal in our kitchenette and join friends at one of our many harvest tables. Just visiting? There are plenty of great places to stay that are only minutes away from campus.
