School of Theology News
AU's School of Theology attracted a large number of young international students this year. Individuals from Kenya, Singapore, India, Nepal, Mexico and Russia have recently joined the ranks of seminary students pursuing graduate degrees at the SOT. Their diverse backgrounds and experiences add diversity and depth to the classroom experience.
For AU School of Theology students, Dr. Robert Langat of Kenya hopes to shine a new light on perceptions of missions work.
During his year-long residency at AU, Langat will teach three classes: African Religion and Culture, History of Missions and Biblical Theology of Poverty. In addition to teaching, he will offer two public lectures: "Understanding Leadership in a Culture Not Our Own" and "Theology of the Poor."
Anderson University has received the designation “College of Distinction” in the newly-released 2008-2009 edition of Colleges of Distinction. Unlike traditional numeric-based college guidebooks, this book recognizes and appeals to students’ unique interests, realizing what may be “the best” college for one student, may be vastly different than the best for another.
The School of Theology needs an update more than any other building on campus, and now alumni and friends can help made a huge difference. Dr. James and Elizabeth York, longtime friends of the School of Theology, have promised to match $100,000 in donations made to the seminary.
