We are in the middle of a very significant year: September 20, 2015 was the beginning of the 40th year of theological education at UTS. I hope that you will join with me this anniversary year by contributing to the Annual Fund and the 40/40 Campaign.

Donors make bequests to make a difference after they are gone. Mary Goodman, a New Haven laundress who bequeathed her life savings (nearly $5,000) to Yale Divinity School to provide scholarships for African Americans, was especially successful in this regard: her bequest supported the school’s first black students, and continues to support students today, nearly 144 years later.

Norbert Hellmann, a long-time employee at UTS, passed away on Friday, January 4. Mr. Hellman taught ESL to hundreds of students for more than 10 years. Although he was not a Unificationist himself, he was a congenial and exceptionally dedicated teacher.

norbert_hellmannNorbert HellmannMost recently, Norbert had been teaching ESL at SUNY New Paltz. I often saw him at ESL teacher's conferences. Apparently, the night he died, he had been exercising at the university gym, but he never made it home. Campus security found him later that evening in his car, where he had suffered a fatal heart attack. He was only 53 years old.

The following is the link to the local newspaper article describing what happened.
