President Daniel Lehmann notes in his letter in this Spring 2019 edition of Skylight that, "By its very nature, the GTU generates the kind of creative and compassionate conversations found at the heart of a truly transformative education."
The GTU stands with people of peace everywhere in expressing our outrage and sadness at the horrific mass murder that took place during Friday prayer at two mosques in New Zealand. GTU President Rabbi Daniel L. Lehmann stated, “The scourge of white supremacist terrorism and religious intolerance must be combatted with all of our resources. We pray for the victims and their families, and stand in solemn solidarity with all in the Muslim community."
The GTU is partnering with John Wiley & Sons to begin overseeing publication of the journal Teaching Theology & Religion in 2020. Dr. Kyle Schiefelbein-Guererro of the GTU has been selected as the publication's new editor.
CARe and UC Berkeley's Cal Performances have established a new partnership to promote greater appreciation of the performing arts, beginning with enhanced programming supporting the March 3 performance of Akram Khan's XENOS.
On January 14-16, 2019, the GTU hosted a regional consultation on the theme of interreligious theological education, part of a three-year study of “Current and Future Directions in Theological Education.”
