This Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month we will be celebrating a cross-section of Union’s AAPI alums. Today we honor, Dr. Su Yon Pak, the Senior Director and Associate Professor of Integrative and Field-based Education at Union Theological Seminary.

In 1993, Dr. Pak made her home in NYC and received her doctorate from the joint Teachers College – Union Theological Seminary program in Religion and Education. She has taught at Teachers College Columbia University, Mercy College, and Auburn Theological Seminary.
