Student Life

Austin Seminary is home to a vibrant student and campus community, offering a variety of opportunities for individuals from all walks of life to get involved. Our student life includes active and committed student leaders through our Student Senate as well as our diverse and vibrant student groups doing great work on campus and in the broader community.

Student Life at Austin Seminary is under the purview of the Office of Student Affairs & Vocation. 

The campus and community life at Austin Seminary was so formative for me, providing me a variety of leadership and involvement opportunities both on and off campus, as well as through lifelong connections and friends made as a result.

The purpose of the Hesed lectureship at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary is to promote awareness and church involvement in the area of social justice, thus enabling "hesed," which is Hebrew for justice, loving kindness, and mercy. The Hesed lectureship was started by Austin Seminary students of the (then) African American Student Group and Hispanic Student Association in 2014 to bring attention to issues of justice.
