Sewanee, VTS Make School List

Two seminaries of the Episcopal Church — the University of the South’s School of Theology and Virginia Theological Seminary — are among 27 named as Seminaries that Change the World.

The list is the work of the Center for Faith and Service at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago. In 2014, the same year it launched, the center released a list of Service Programs that Change the World.

“Seminaries that Change the World is by no means an exhaustive or exclusive list,” said a news release [Word] by the center. “It represents a collection of institutions that came forward on their own initiative and [that] have demonstrated that they welcome idealistic and committed individuals who have demonstrated their engagement in the world or who seek to gain experience in justice work.”
