Come, come, whoever you are… wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. Ours is no caravan of despair. Even if you’ve broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come.Rumi
Starr King School for the Ministry trains and works in a culture of countering oppressions and is open to applicants without regard to ethnic or national origin, creed, sex, gender (or gender presentation), sexual orientation, disability, or other historically marginalizing factors. Applications for admissions must furnish evidence of good character, and of sufficient academic preparation and ability to do the work required.
Welcome to Starr King School for the Ministry–a flagship of prophetic Unitarian Universalist and multireligious divinity education for over a century!

Our distinguished graduates can be found all over the globe, at the forefront of movements for progressive religious witness and social change.
