Description of Organization

Auburn Theological Seminary was founded 200 years ago as a Presbyterian seminary in Auburn, New York by a handful of women who graduated from the seminary before Auburn relocated to New York City in 1939. Today, The Auburn Seminary is committed to developing leadership for a multifaith world. Their various programs include:

  • The Coach Training Program which strengthens church leaders in organizational leadership, personal resilience, and vocational discernment.
  • A Presbyterian Students program and other theological training for Presbyterian leadership
  • The Mountain Top, with convenings that bring together faith leaders from across the country and various faith traditions to explore and move actions forward to catalyze multifaith movements for justice.
  • The Face-to-Face Program, a gathering of hundreds of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim teenagers to develop a new generation of leaders able to negotiate a multifaith global society.
  • Annual Auburn Research Fellows Colloquium, which brings together the leading scholars in multifaith work.

The Auburn Seminary also houses The Center for the Study of Theological Education (CSTE), which provides reliable information and perspectives on theological education in North America.
