In the spirit of community, during a time that calls for deep healing and renewal, Union Theological Seminary invites its cherished alumni/ae to join our virtual series of ReUnion events from Sunday, April 18 through Wednesday, April 21.
This is a celebratory occasion to return, rejoice and reflect with one another and with the institution. We will have a full day of academic and spiritual activities for Union Alumni/ae during ReUnion. A single registration is required to receive the login credentials to enter the virtual spaces for each session.
Each day will begin with Morning Joy, highlighting diverse spiritual enrichment methods to start one’s day and we will end with Reflection to conclude the day in community. Daily, we will host Faculty Lectures, Chapel and Worship Services, and Anniversary Class Hangouts.
Alumni/ae are invited to attend the sessions that interest them, catch up with old and new friends, and get updated on the happenings at Union Theological Seminary. Our schedule is still in formation and subject to change. Once registered, you will receive regular updates about the activities planned as the schedule is finalized.
