Degree awardees from Bachelor of Arts to Doctor of Ministry got their marching orders to go forth and be the light of the world on Saturday at the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) in Barrytown, New York.

Faculty and students of Barrytown College said goodbye to each other Friday, May 22nd, with their signature elements of emo, film, PowerPoint, poetry and – oh yes -- group dancing. By all appearances, a lot of memories had been packed into a short two-year span in which Unification Theological Seminary had launched its first undergraduate program.


2015 is the 40th year since UTS first opened.

The Unification Theological Seminary was launched with the Convocation on September 20th 1975, welcoming the incoming Class of 1977.

Since then, close to 1700 graduates have gone out to serve the USA and the world. The service of those alumni throughout these 40 years has been exemplary. Wherever there is a front line then you will continue to find a UTS alumnus or alumna.

During the Alumni Conference on Graduation Weekend (May 23rd-25th) the Director of Development, Mr. Robin James Graham together with UTS President, Dr. Hugh Spurgin announced the UTS 40/40 Campaign ~ $40 per month toward the next 40 years.


To support the UTS 40/40 campaign: contribute $40 each month

The UTS 40/40 Campaign gives the opportunity for the 1700 graduates of UTS to engage and support UTS as it goes through the process of re-imagination, re-definition and re-positioning to better serve the next wave of graduates who will serve the world.

We hope to have 200 alumni and friends contributing $40 per month by September 20th!


In the next 3-4 months, from now through September 20th, 2015,

the Board of Trustees, the UTS president and the UTS development office will be reaching out to alumni and friends to ask for their commitment to launch UTS on its way to another 40 years!!!

Take a few minutes to remind yourself of the role that UTS has played in your personal formation.

Then imagine the next 40 years and how important UTS can be in the lives of the next generation of UTS graduates who choose to live for the sake of the world.
