Education for Transformation matters. The world is a better place because of United graduates.
United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities trains values-based leaders to serve in church settings, the non-profit arena, the public sector and in education.
What is the United story? United’s style of leadership development began in 1962 when it was founded by the United Church of Christ. It was chartered as an ecumenical seminary—a radical move for the time. United welcomes students of all faiths and traditions. The 2015–16 school year saw 120 students, 25% of whom self-identified as students of color, from over 20 different Protestant denominational presences are represented on campus with no majority. United is a true eclectic and multi-faith campus with some students who do not identify as Christian. Religions represented in the student body include Protestant, Catholic, Jewish, Buddhist, Doaist, African Priestess, Earth-Based, Indigenous Religion, and Humanist. This rich mix of perspectives deepens the classroom experience as students encounter many different worldviews. Few seminaries can offer this degree of diversity. This diversity prepares students to lead with compassion in today’s complex and multicultural world.
Who are our supporters? Individuals who support United understand the importance of leadership development fundamental for long-term change. The students at United are conscientious, questioning and driven to make the world a better place. United develops the leaders our communities need as we grapple with complex problems in diverse settings.
