Day of Scholarship 2023

Capping off the 2023 Winter Residency, The Seattle School is hosting a Day of Scholarship, bringing together students, staff, faculty, and alumni for a time of sharing, connection, and exploration. All members of The Seattle School community are invited.

The focus for this first Day of Scholarship is threefold:

  1. Gain perspective on the work happening within the programs, centers, and projects that comprise The Seattle School. 
  2. Discover how Seattle School community members are contributing to national disciplinary and interdisciplinary conversations and addressing lived questions.
  3. Expand our imagination for scholarship as learners committed to serving God and neighbor through transforming relationships. 

*Note: As part of the Winter Residency, this is a campus-only event and will not be recorded or live-streamed.

To help us gauge attendance numbers please RSVP by January 5, 2023.
