This past Monday, the Graduate Theological Union and Newbigin House of Studies announced an exciting new partnership. The fruit of many years of exploration, we are especially grateful for the commitment to creative collaboration and interreligious dialogue this step represents. We are modeling a contrasting vision in a time of sharp social and cultural divisions fueled by religious differences.
The core commitments and programs of Newbigin House remain the same, even as we adapt to escalating urgency in theological education for ongoing innovation. Deeper engagement with the most pressing questions and challenges of our day will require broader conversations. We are also expanding access for our students to the extraordinary resources of the GTU and its member institutions.
About the GTU in Berkeley: The Graduate Theological Union, created in 1962, is a consortium of interdependent theological schools, centers, and affiliates committed to collaboration with one another in order to offer a stronger graduate degree program than any single institution could offer alone … It is the most comprehensive center for the graduate study of religion in North America. –– GTU Website
