Charge, Membership and Final Report for the Academic Year 2021-22


The STM Committee was convened by Provost Shane Martin for the 2021-22 academic year with the following charges:
• To explore ways to carry forward the ecumenical inspiration underlying the School of Theology & Ministry, and also its interreligious engagement.
• To explore ways to honor the legacy of STM in a closing celebration in spring 2023, and to recommend a tangible way to memorialize the school’s history.

The committee began meeting in September and met monthly through May, concluding with a report to the provost in June 2022.
