What’s happening on campus?
You are invited to a celebration with United Seminary! Join us via Zoom as we celebrate the retirement of Carolyn J. Pressler rescheduled in light of the pandemic. Help us welcome new Interim President Molly T. Marshall, and join us in honoring new members of United’s Bossard-Ward Giving Society.
The celebration will take place on Monday, April 26, from 7:00-8:15 PM.Join us early at 6:45 PM to participate in a virtual tour of the new campus! After the official program, alums are invited to participate in breakout sessions with fellow classmates — a great opportunity to check in with one another after a complex year.
If you have words of thanks or appreciation that you would like to share with Carolyn, please email them to Ashley Hovell. On April 26 we will share your good wishes with her and hear from three colleagues that represent the breadth of Carolyn’s work at United:
We will also extend our deep gratitude as we welcome members to our Bossard-Ward Giving Society — a group of alums whose commitment to faithful generosity to United exceeds $10,000 in lifetime giving.
We hope you will join us for a moving evening as we celebrate the Works of Love offered by so many in our United community.
In this Chapel, President Dr. Molly Marshall and United student Naw Eh Wah will highlight the conflict happening in Myanmar and to offer support to our students connected to that community.
In this arts lunch we will provide space for community to create art and reflect on the role of arts in movement building and community organizing. In particular, we consider the role of arts in healing, mourning, and the fight for justice in the wake of the Derek Chauvin Verdict and the police killing of Daunte Wright. What art have you turned to into these times? What art practices or exercises provide spiritual and emotional support amidst tragedy? How can art address white supremacy and work toward solidarity across racial, ethnic, gendered, sexual, and economic divides? Feel free to bring coloring books, knitting, felting, a sketch book, paint, clay, other art supplies or just yourself to make art in this low-stakes, reflective space.
