Katie Cannon and C.T. Vivian to Receive Union Medal

KATIE CANNON AND C.T. VIVIAN TO RECEIVE UNION MEDAL 
This year’s Commencement Union Medal recipients will be Katie Cannon ’83 and C.T. Vivian. Both Cannon and Vivian will give a short charge to our graduates at Commencement. You can find short bios of both Cannon and Vivian below. Click the links to read more of their bios.
The first African-American woman ordained in the United Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), Cannon focuses her work in the areas of Christian ethics, Womanist theology, and women in religion and society. She has lectured nationally on theological and ethical topics and is the author or editor of numerous articles and seven books including Katie’s Canon: Womanism and the Soul of the Black Community and Black Womanist Ethics. Read more.
Union Professor Andrea White says of Dr. Cannon, “‘My fascination with words has no conscious beginning,’ writes Katie Cannon in Katie’s Canon. It is no wonder then that Dr. Cannon would spend a career supporting her thesis that the black women’s literary tradition is the best available repository for understanding womanist theological ethics. Not only did her groundbreaking work launch the entire enterprise of womanist Christian ethics, her innovative scholarship utterly reshaped the theoethical framework by foregrounding black women’s narratives.  Katie Cannon performed an epistemic intervention for Christian ethics and everything has been permanently changed. What she has called Zora Neale Hurston, I would say of Dr. Cannon—she is a justice-making prophet of possibilities.”
In November 2013, Dr. Vivian was honored for his vision and leadership in the fight for justice when

Prominent Climate Scientist Katharine Hayhoe to Speak at Moyers Lecture at Union Seminary

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Contact: Joey Longley, jlongley@uts.columbia.edu, 419-953-5495
Prominent Climate Scientist Katharine Hayhoe to Speak at Moyers Lecture at Union Seminary
NEW YORK, NY—Katharine Hayhoe, a climate scientist, a professor at Texas Tech University, evangelical Christian, and a TIME 100 Most Influential People honoree, will give the Sixth Annual Judith Davidson Moyers Women of Spirit Lecture on April 13th at 6:30pm at Union Theological Seminary in New York. In 2014, she was named one of Foreign Policy’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers and in 2015 she was named one of the Huffington Post’s 20 Climate Champions. Hayhoe, with her husband Andrew, a pastor, wrote A Climate for Change: Global Warming Facts for Faith-Based Decisions (2009).
“I am honored to have Dr. Katharine Hayhoe, who so naturally integrates her deepest intellectual, moral, and theological convictions with concrete action in the world, speak here at Union Seminary,” said Union Theological Seminary President Serene Jones. “In order to battle climate change, we need a broad coalition of people from every theological and political perspective to demand meaningful action. Dr. Hayhoe’s work is crucial in this effort.”
Hayhoe’s lecture comes after Union Theological Seminary’s announcement that it is divesting its $105 million endowment from fossil fuels. Union Theological Seminary is also home of The Center for Earth Ethics led by Karenna Gore, whose mission is to work with people of faith and people of conscience to create a new paradigm based on the sustained well being of all people and our planet.
“Now in its sixth year, I’m very pleased to

Union Mourns Alum Anika Gibbons

UNION MOURNS ALUM ANIKA L. GIBBONS, M.A. 2013
The Union Seminary community mourns the death on January 5, 2016 of alumna Anika Gibbons, MA ’13. She was 42 and had recently entered hospice care.
Friday, January 15th, 2016 – Reposing (Viewing) at Unity Funeral Chapel – 2352 8th Avenue @ 126th Street, NY, NY 10027 from 3pm to 8 pm.
The funeral will be held at Riverside Church on Saturday, January 16 at 10:30am. There will be a public viewing at 9:30am in Christ Chapel.
Anika Gibbons produced, wrote, and directed a documentary short entitled “Journey To Liberation: The Legacy of Womanist Theology and Womanist Ethics at Union Theological Seminary.” In the true tradition of African-American storytelling, the documentary looks at the radical spirituality and scholarship within the lives of the founding mothers of Womanist theology and Womanist ethics.
While receiving her BFA in screenwriting at the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University, she worked at Spike Lee’s 40 Acres and Mule Filmworks. More recently she wrote and developed projects for New Line Cinema, Showtime Networks, the SyFy Channel, VH-1, and HBO. In addition to her work for MTV and Comedy Central, she was a coordinating producer at the Oxygen television network and an associate producer for the SyFy Channel.
Anika Gibbons was a unique talent and forceful personality. She will be sorely missed.
Prayers for Anika’s family.

A Statement on Union’s Facilities

November 23, 2015 
To Union Students, Faculty, and Staff,
I would like to update you about our plan to revitalize Union’s campus. I know it is of great interest to all, and I thought it would be helpful to explain the basic facts about our plan as it stands now. Many of you have already heard this information in the several community presentations for students and alums I have shared over the past two months. Most recently, this includes an open conversation with students and alums at the AAR Annual Meeting. Of course, I will continue to update you as we have further information.
Today’s Vibrant Union
Union now stands in a strong position, both financially and programmatically. We are excited about our future, and for good reason. Our enrollment remains strong, our faculty continues to be without peer, and our educational offerings are creatively expanding to meet the challenges of the day. You can feel that vitality in our halls, dorms, and classrooms, in the engaged, lively voices of our students, our Union Fellows, our excellent teachers, and the many world-renowned scholars who seek us out for theological conversation. Moreover, to support this work, we continue to be blessed with a healthy endowment and a balanced operating budget. For the past eight years, we have exceeded our fundraising goals, and we continue to make the Jackson-Mitchell Chair our top funding priority.
Preserving Union for the Next 100 Years
As responsible stewards of the Seminary, the Board of Trustees and senior managers have been exploring ways

A Statement on Anti-Muslim Rhetoric

A STATEMENT ON ANTI-MUSLIM RHETORIC
December 9, 2015
To the Union Community, 
The recent presence of anti-Muslim rhetoric in the mainstream media narrative is morally unconscionable. In response, we would like to share the statement found below which was originally shared on our Facebook page: 
Fear-mongering based on anti-Muslim hate is at its most visible, with recent calls by political candidates for a ban on Muslim immigration, for closings of mosques, and for the registration of Muslim Americans. This is a dangerous moment in America and we pray that this isn’t the turn towards fascism it appears to be. Reports of hate crimes against Muslims and those who “appear” Muslim are also on the rise. We are morally and religiously appalled by this turn of events, and we are frightened not only by the language of leaders, but by the hatred it seems to inspire in increasingly large audiences. But, American Islamophobia did not start with any recent political speech. It goes back decades and generations, and is part of a larger system that thrives on the dehumanization, scapegoating, and marginalization of diverse communities. As a religious and educational institution, we unequivocally condemn any action, statement, sentiment, or policy that denigrates the full dignity and humanity of our Muslim neighbors. At Union, we work to build leaders for communities that welcome all people, embracing all races, genders, religions, sexual orientations, ages, and abilities. Our field of Interreligious Engagement promotes groundbreaking academic and public work on this critical topic, and we are grateful for the contributions
