Welcome to Starr King

Starr King School for the Ministry is a graduate theological school and seminary, a member of the Graduate Theological Union, in Berkeley, Calif. Our roots are deep in the fertile soil of Unitarian Universalism, and our branches embrace the multireligious life and learning that will matter most in this new century. We hold fast to a vision that theological education must focus on the development of the whole person and the calling forth of each person's gifts.
