Please join us on Wednesday, Oct 27, 2021; 4:00 – 5:00 pm ET for a Seminarians in Public Service Alumni/ae Panel. It might surprise you to learn that public service has proven to be a meaningful career path for some Union Theological Seminary alums.
Our panelists represent all levels of government service — local, state, and federal. Come and learn what drew these alums to careers in the public sector and how seminary training contributed to and prepared them for their careers. Following the panelists’ initial discussion, there will be time for questions from attendees, as well.
