The School of Divinity is home to a diverse community of academics and students. We are connected by our curiosity in the world and our fascination in how people’s beliefs shape their lives. Our work is critical to understanding humanity’s history, its present, and to navigating our complex world.

We want to maintain a world-class environment for learning and research, make sure our research can have a real-world impact, and that our educational opportunities are accessible to people from all backgrounds. To do this we need support from our community of alumni and friends.
