GTU at 50 Years

September 2012 marks the 50th anniversary of the Graduate Theological Union. To commemorate this historic milestone, the GTU will hold a gala celebration in the Fall. And to set the stage for the next 50 years, we will be rolling out a series of programs designed to more fully engage the institution and its member schools in the most pressing global issues of the day, such as human rights, human development, the environment, war and peace transition, religion and natural sciences, and art, culture and technology.
