TWO PROGRAMS AT HIGHEST ACADEMIC LEVELS SUPPORT UNDERREPRESENTED SCHOLARS

Abstract: 
Two powerhouse programs, funded consistently and generously for many years by Lilly Endowment, have focused on improving diversity in the theological academy by supporting emerging scholars and educators from underrepresented racial/ethnic groups. These programs, the Fund for Theological Education and the Hispanic Theological Initiative, illustrate the decisiveness of some church leaders to acknowledge past inequities and address the demographic changes of the past fifty years.
