Seminaries in a multifaith setting

Claremont, Andover Newton, Meadville Lombard
Officials at the Claremont School of Theology, which has a long-term project to create a multifaith university and seminary campus, breathed a sigh of relief in late June when United Methodist Church agencies released about $350,000 in funding and reinstated the school’s standing in the church.

“I think the review came about in the first place because some people were worried that we were turning a United Methodist–related seminary into something very different,” said Jerry D. Camp bell, president of the California school. He said Methodist clergy will still be taught at Claremont and they will be better prepared for a diverse society when the campus is affiliated with schools educating Jewish and Muslim religious professionals.
