Spring semester at Drew Theological School started by welcoming 22 masters students who come to us from 10 different denominations, 11 states and 8 countries. In the current challenging ecology of theological education, Drew continues to show well among our peer institutions -- in the top 10% of ATS schools for enrollment, acceptance rate, and total degrees awarded. This is good news (more).

Tieck, T'42 in honor of his longtime friend, New York area Methodist laywoman Florence Ellen Bell, the Bell Methodist Bishop-In-Residence Program supports research and scholarly publication in Methodist studies, and education of lay and clergy leaders about Methodism's historical legacy and contemporary dynamics (more).
