STH Intentional Communities
The School of Theology is committed to the idea that learning happens within and beyond the classroom. Intentional living Communities are part of that vision of Contextual Education.
An intentional community is more than a place to live. All residents within an intentional community are organized around and committed to certain common ideas and goals through a living covenant. Each intentional community has a living covenant, signed by all incoming residents, which outlines the expectations of those living within the space – things like weekly community-building meals, programming, and living practices.
There are currently three School of Theology intentional communities:
Theology House: on-campus space that holds 22 students; primarily for single, first-year students; focused on cross-cultural engagement and vocational discernment
Green House: off-campus space that holds 4-6 students (two single rooms, two rooms for couples without children); focused on environmentally sustainable living
Beane House of Study: off-campus space that holds 10 single students; focused on personal academic development (space may be available for couples without children, as well – please inquire with the Admissions Office for availability)
