Our new Dean reflects on the exceptional students, innovative scholarship, and bright future of the GTU.
On my first day of work at the GTU in January, I lifted all the window shades in the Dean’s office to let the light in and saw the panoramic view of Berkeley and the San Francisco Bay unfold before my eyes. I couldn’t believe anyone would lower the shades, ever, when there was such gorgeous scenery to enjoy. About an hour later I realized why previous GTU Deans had to lower at least some of the shades. The sunlight in the office is blinding, and the corner where my desk is located got very warm very quickly. I guess it is possible to have too much of a good thing!

When Uriah Kim first visited the Graduate Theological Union as a prospective doctoral student in the spring of 1998, he sensed immediately that it was a special place, pulsing with the vitality of serious intellectual and spiritual discovery. “I remember meeting with GTU students and alumni on Holy Hill, and I could immediately sense the energy. The GTU is a place that stimulates your mind, your spirit—everything.”
