Meadville Lombard warmly welcomes you to visit us, whether you are considering applying or have applied to the school, want to explore our Unitarian Universalist history, or wish to learn more about the importance and distinction of a liberal, progressive theological school.
We host Prospective Student Conferences several times a year during the times when our students are gathered at our Chicago campus for intensive classwork. These conferences are an excellent way to experience what it is like to be a student at Meadville Lombard.
At a Prospective Student Conference you can:
For prospective students who cannot travel to Chicago on the dates of the conference, we offer informational webinars.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, we are canceling the in-person conferences and offering more webinars for our prospective students to learn about our programs. Please check our Prospective Student Events page for updates.
Prospective students, students enrolled in programs at other seminaries, alums, and teaching pastors and mentors are warmly invited to take a class at Meadville Lombard and experience our learning model firsthand.
If you are a prospective student and cannot attend a Prospective Student Conference, we encourage you to take a class as a student at large.
Meadville Lombard shares space in an innovative, environmentally sustainable building that features interconnected interior spaces and a one-of-a-kind, 10-story faceted window wall with spectacular views of downtown Chicago. Contact us to set up a campus visit.
