Community Image

The commitment to inclusion by Princeton Theological Seminary is reflected not in a specific project but in all activities of the institution. The Seminary has a strong stated commitment to diversity and to the importance of responding “to Christ’s call for the unity of the church,” as it “embraces in its life and work a rich racial and ethnic diversity and the breadth of communions represented in the worldwide church.”

One of our initiatives is entitled: “The L.I.V.E. (Learning, Inclusion, Vitality, Exploration) Symposium (“Symposium”). This Symposium will be geared toward identifying thirty ministerial candidates from underrepresented domestic population groups from a wide spectrum of sources and intentionally inviting them to the Seminary campus for a 2 ½ day vocational exploration gathering. See L.I.V.E. Symposium program. See L.I.V.E. Symposium Facilitators.
