"Duke Divinity School is a space that immerses students into an ecumenical community of study and worship. This immersion has moved me toward humility and praise. It has prepared me for engaging with people that hold a variety of differing convictions in a manner that is constructive and faithful, and it has shown me that uniformity is not a prerequisite for communal worship."

Our faculty and students represent many different backgrounds and more than 30 denominations. As we learn with and from each other, challenge one another, and grow together, our Christian witness and theological training is enriched and deepened.
