In our work we strive to embody what we hope to see in the world — a just, loving humanity and community in which people are free to be themselves fully and without fear; a community where no one is exiled, silenced or exploited because of gender, gender expression, race, color, ethnic or national origin, religion, sexual/affectional orientation, age, class, physical character or disability.


Our faculty come from a variety of academic and professional backgrounds. Their work supports the school’s mission to prepare people for Unitarian Universalist and progressive multi-religious faith ministries and religious leadership in society.


Community life is an integral part of study at Starr King. The school welcomes a diverse population, including international students and those who represent a variety of life stages. The school affirms the range of human gender identities and sexual/affectional orientations and celebrates our growing racial and cultural diversity.

Additionally, Starr King houses The Center for Multi-Religious Studies (CMRS), a premier hub for the academic and vocational exploration of multi-religious identity and practice.
