An announcement from Wesley President David McAllister-Wilson:
I am excited to announce that Wesley Theological Seminary is opening in time for the fall semester. The Administrative Council, in consultation with health and legal professionals, have devised a working policy and practice,“Safe Return to Campus” (find below), tha t aims to meet students at a level of comfort that works for them.
This fall, the seminary is resuming in-person classes, following DC and CDC recommendations, along with worship in Oxnam Chapel (Tuesdays at noon), on-campus housing options, meal plan options with our neighboring university, and community life activities. However, knowing that some people will not be able to fully participate in-person, we are also offering a robust selection of online course options, live-streamed worship, and virtual community life activities.
We’re also pleased to announce new hybrid pathways for students who can come to campus just three times each semester for courses, worship, and formation. You can find more about this option on the Admissions webpage. We are pleased to welcome prospective students, alumni, and friends to campus for events or visits in accordance with the Safe Return policies as well.
If conditions change, we will keep the extended Wesley family updated as to how we will proceed together. For now, we are excited to resume a full spectrum of in-person and online educational, worship, and community building opportunities this fall. I hope to see you on campus soon.
