Episcopal Divinity School to join Union seminary in New York

EDS students will earn Union degrees, and EDS appointed Kelly Brown Douglas as dean.

Episcopal Divinity School has stopped granting degrees at its Cam­bridge, Mass­achusetts, campus, but the school is not closing. Instead it will join Union Theo­logical Seminary in New York City.


EDS and Union signed an agreement on the collaboration May 19, and Kelly Brown Douglas, an Episcopal priest, scholar, and author of Stand Your Ground: Black Bodies and the Justice of God, was named the first dean of EDS at Union.
