Symposium is an annual gathering of our entire student body, faculty, staff, trustees, and community members. This “urban retreat” serves as a day of study, dialogue, food, art, music, community-building, service, and celebration of the Spirit of Life, as we cultivate multi-religious, counter-oppressive, just and sustainable communities. Symposium is convened by The Rev. Dr. Gabriella Lettini, SKSM Dean of Faculty.
Stay tuned for details about Symposium 2022.
