Our Commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary affirms the God-given dignity of all persons and recognizes persons of all faith traditions to be uniquely created in God’s image. The Seminary welcomes people of all races, cultures, abilities, sexual orientations, gender expressions, and socioeconomic status to learn and study at this school of the church.
Students, faculty, and staff model the unity and diversity of the church, evidenced in a student-driven Beloved Community Covenant. You will engage in conversations that both nurture and challenge your own deeply held beliefs. While we continue to strive for even greater racial and ethnic diversity, the faculty and students we attract are a rich source of inspiration and challenge to the dominant culture.
