The mood of the first class of UTS at the Clinton Maryland satellite center was upbeat and veering toward the heights of optimism at its first convocation on Monday, Sept. 28th. The celebration began with prayer of blessing offered by Bishop David Billings, presiding Bishop, United Fellowship of Churches International and UTS Board of Trustees member.

The Association of Theological Schools (ATS) provides an overview of enrollment, students, faculty, and finances at member schools. Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) is not yet a member of ATS, but our presidents and administrative staff have been welcomed at several ATS conferences over the last 15 years.

Mugyo Choe, after seven years as a church leader in Japan, came to UTS in order to improve his competency as a minister and learn how to do ministry in an environment of religious pluralism. Now, as a Field Education Intern in the Clinical Pastoral Education (CPE) program at Westchester Medical Center, Mugyo has the opportunity to achieve his goals. Reflecting on his experience, Mugyo reports that in the hospital environment he regularly encounters imams, rabbis, priest and clergy from several Protestant denominations. Moreover, as a hospital chaplain, he also ministers to all patients no matter what their religious preference.

Mugyo is the first Barrytown Student in the thirty year history of UTS to be accepted into a CPE program and is the first recipient of one of the five $1200 scholarships UTS established this term to support students who have been accepted into CPE programs. Westchester Medical Center is one of three accredited CPE program sites in close proximity to the UTS Barrytown Campus. Other students are in the process of applying to CPE programs at Albany Medical Center and Vassar Brothers Hospital—both within one hour of the seminary.
