Community Programming

The mission of Community Programming at United Theological Seminary seeks to sustain religious leaders (clergy and lay) and, for the wider community, serve as a resource of theological inquiry, spiritual formation and ethical development.

Whether you’re looking for Continuing Education credits or simply feeding your soul, add a United event to your calendar.

Fall Convocation and Spring Convocation are annual events at United. Fall Convocation formally opens the new academic year. Spring Convocation is of special interest for alums, as well as the wider community, and provides an opportunity for the community to gather, remember, celebrate and explore topics of interest.

Public Lectures

United hosts four on-campus lecture series, all of which are free and open to the public.

  • The Susan Draper White Lectures in Women's Studies presents two lectures in the area of women in religion, theology, and ministry. The lecture series is the major public event offered through the seminary’s Women’s Studies program.
  • The goal of the annual Multicultural Lectures is to continue developing strong, meaningful relationships with communities outside the cultural mainstream to enhance recruitment, provide mentoring services and develop resources.
  • The Gustafson Lectures in Biblical Studies bring to campus an internationally recognized scholar in biblical studies for the presentation of two original lectures. This lectureship occurs periodically.
  • The purpose of the Picard Lectures in Environmental Theology and Ethics is to explore questions and issues concerning the state of the creation from theological and ethical perspectives. The lectureship seeks to raise questions such as the relation between our spiritual life and the state of the natural world and the response of religious leadership to the decline of the planet.
