“Personally, I love Sewanee and what it represents," says the Very Rev. Christoph Keller, "a liberal arts college nested in the Christian faith and Christian church. I think it is important to be reminded that the Christian tradition can be and has been the home of intellectual inquiry.
"I also look forward to the School of Theology returning to central campus. I like what that represents for the University—a reintegration of the School in the life of the University and a return to Cardinal Newman’s idea that all knowledge and learning occurs in a comprehensive whole.
“For Trinity Cathedral, we take very seriously our investment as a part of an owning diocese. We have long fed from Sewanee, with many cathedral staff having studied there and as a long time site for EfM. The Stronger Truer Sewanee campaign gives us an opportunity to highlight that connection and to make being a part of the owning group more salient.”
Trinity Cathedral, Little Rock has made a $100,000 commitment to the building fund for returning the School of Theology to central campus.
