Distinguished Faculty Lectures

Each November the GTU faculty honors a distinguished professor who embodies the scholarly standards, teaching excellence, and commitment to ecumenism that define the GTU. Nominations are considered by the Council of Deans, who then select the next year’s Distinguished Faculty Lecturer.

Selected audio and/or video recordings and other files for these events can be accessed through the GTU Archives in the Hewlett Library.

Surjit Singh Lecture in Comparative Religious Thought and Culture

The Graduate Theological Union has long been a leading center for ecumenical theological education and for interreligious dialogue and understanding. The annual Surjit Singh Lecture in Comparative Religious Thought and Culture builds on this tradition by fostering interreligious and cross-cultural communication and understanding, without compromising the integrity and essential telos of a religion or a culture.
