Hartford Seminary is pleased to announce that we have been recognized in the 2016-17 class of Seminaries that Change the World by The Center for Faith and Service.
Each year, Seminaries that Change the World identifies a select group of seminaries and divinity schools offering innovative courses, programs, and opportunities for students seeking to engage in social justice and service work while in seminary. Our recognition as a Seminary that Changes the World reflects the ongoing work we are doing to promote interfaith understanding and to prepare religious leaders for a multifaith and pluralistic world.
The list of Seminaries that Change the World is published by The Center for Faith and Service, an organization that works to help seminaries, service programs, denominations and local congregations connect faith with service and social justice work.
Reflecting on this year’s list of Seminaries that Change the World, Wayne Meisel, Executive Director of The Center for Faith and Service, remarked: “Anyone seeking to change the world ought to at least consider seminary or divinity school as an option to grow personally in one’s faith and to inspire, sustain and deepen his or her commitment to neighbor, community, country and the world. Through their commitment to collaborate, this diverse group of schools named on this year’s list of Seminaries that Change the World embody the best of faithful and justice seeking communities.”
