School of Theology and Ministry

Rooted in faith, hope and compassion, the School of Theology and Ministry (STM) inspires and educates the whole person to heal, lead and transform relationships, organizations and communities for a more just and humane world.


Faculty, staff, students and alumni of the school serve, challenge and profoundly contribute to a variety of industries including faith communities, nonprofit groups, public policy, government and individual lives. Please join us by supporting our faculty, students and special programs.


Your gift helps incredible students like these:

“I really wanted to understand my Catholic faith and how I bring it to the world to the public sector and the private sector. I think that seeing that STM was straddled between faith and also ethics in real-world application, I think that's what drew me to STM.”

“I came to STM as a continuation of my theological studies and training. I found it to be a place of creativity, a place where I could actually live into my call.”

“After my first two quarters studying Hebrew Scriptures and Christian scriptures, I developed a love of Bible that I didn't think I had and have since switched to the M.Div. program. So, I'm very grateful.”

“I was one of the youngest students in the Master of Arts in Transformational Leadership (MATL) at STM.  One of my worries, was will I relate to anyone? Will they take me seriously being so young and inexperienced, having little work history? I never felt that my experience or my knowledge was undermined, and I think that across the board - across all generations - we really, really did learn from each other and taught each other different things coming from our own generations.”
