SIXTY YEARS ON THE VANGUARD: UNITED TURNS 60
THE CELEBRATION BEGINS SEPTEMBER 28, 2022
(ST. PAUL, MINN., August 10, 2022) – Founded in 1962, United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities has reached another milestone and will kick off its 60th anniversary at a special event for students and alums, current and former faculty, and other members of the community on September 28, 2022. The theme for the celebration is "Many Voices United."
"Many Voices United" pays homage to the seminary's ecumenical origins and its ongoing dedication to educating leaders for the church and society, as well as weaving into its curriculum tenets of social transformation, theology and the arts, interreligious engagement, and public theology.
During the day-long celebration (8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.), participants can tour our Saint Paul campus, worship with Rev. Elizabeth Macaulay ('99), and enjoy special intergenerational theological conversations between current and retired faculty members. The day will close with the Distinguished Alum Award. There is also an option to view the program online.
Other anniversary events will be hosted in the months ahead.
The only seminary founded by the then nascent United Church of Christ, United has been a stalwart leader in preparing innovative and compassionate leaders to serve churches, other faith communities, and society as it strives toward justice and peace. At this 60-year milestone, we will take time to honor the past, remember our formative faculty and students, and lay the groundwork for an even brighter future.
Please join us if you can. Registration for the launch event is due September 23, 2022. Visit https://content.unitedseminary.edu/60th-anniversary to learn more and register.
