  • In spring 2017, Episcopal Divinity School (EDS) affiliated with Union Theological Seminary in the city of New York, creating the Episcopal Divinity School at Union (EDS at Union). Formerly EDS was a seminary of the Episcopal Church based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States. Students who enroll in the EDS at Union Anglican Studies program at Union Theological Seminary earn a Master of Divinity degree from Union and also fulfill requirements for ordination in the Episcopal Church. Led by Dean , EDS at Union continues the legacy of EDS at Cambridge, MA by providing innovative public programming and classroom instruction that trains faith leaders for progressive activism and reimagines faith in the public square. While an independent seminary in Cambridge, MA, EDS offered Master of Divinity, Master of Arts in Theological Studies, and Doctor of Ministry degree programs, as well as a Certificate in Anglican Studies program. It had a longtime relationship with Harvard Divinity School that included cross-registration. The Episcopal Divinity School was a member of the Boston Theological Institute, a consortium of nine Boston-area seminaries and divinity schools that share library and academic resources and allow cross-registration for courses. Since 2010, EDS had shared part of its campus, offered cross-registration, and pooled resources with Lesley University. Established to train people for ordination in the Episcopal Church, the seminary also trained students from other denominations; since 2011, members of the Metropolitan Community Church could train for ordination in their church, receiving specific instruction on their church's polity. Known throughout the Anglican Communion for progressive teaching and action on issues of civil rights and social justice, its faculty and students were directly involved in many of the social controversies surrounding the Episcopal Church in the latter half of the 20th century and at the start of the 21st.
