YDS Convocation & Reunions 2022: Oct. 12-15, 2022

In a year with many milestones, Yale Divinity School is both proud and excited to join together with partners on Sterling Divinity Quadrangle—Andover Newton Seminary, Berkeley Divinity School, and the Yale Institute for Sacred Music—to host the 2022 Convocation and Reunions October 12 –15, 2022. In this pivotal year, we will celebrate the bicentennial of Yale Divinity School, the 50thyear of Berkeley Divinity School as a partner on the Quad, the fifth year of Andover Newton as an embedded institution, and 50th anniversary of the founding of the Institute of Sacred Music. We remain optimistic that we will celebrate these events in person and, for the very first year, we will host them while students are still in session to create spaces for alumni/ae and current students to fellowship together. There will be diverse opportunities to worship, break bread, connect/reconnect, and learn about the inspiring minds that are inspiring the future of faith leadership and education.
We hope that you check regularly for updates and announcements. Registration opens in late summer. Between now and then, we will be sharing the exciting details of this significant opportunity.
