This week at uuworld.org: Seminaries' funding cut.
Kimberly French tells the story of the Women and Religion Resolution, which transformed the Unitarian Universalist Association thirty years ago.
In the news, Tom Stites reports that the UUA Board of Trustees approved 10 percent funding cuts to the two UUA-affiliated seminaries last week and launched an 18-month process to set a strategy for funding excellence in the ministry. (The Panel on Theological Education's proposal [pdf] will zero out the direct grants to Meadville Lombard and Starr King over the next three years.)
In other news, Michelle Deakin profiles new UUA treasurer and vice president of finance Tim Brennan, who is a vigorous proponent of socially responsible investing. Jane Greer tracks Unitarian Universalists in the media and Tom Stites files updates from the plenary sessions at the UUA General Assembly for uuworld.org's blogs.
