At Meadville Lombard Theological School, our mission is to educate students in the Unitarian Universalist tradition to embody liberal religious ministry in Unitarian Universalist congregations and wherever else they are called to serve. We do this to take into the world our Unitarian Universalist vision of justice, equity, and compassion.
Since our founding in 1844, Meadville Lombard has been forming leaders of all races, many ethnicities and nationalities, who usher in spiritually grounded social change through ministries of bridge-building and can help us realize a multicultural future for the world.
