A Religious Awakening
Hawkins, B. Denise
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v27 n22 p17-18 Dec 2010
In this article, the author discusses Princeton Theological Seminary's Hispanic Theological Initiative (HTI), which helps Latino doctoral students launch careers as religion scholars. The HTI is the only academic program of its kind that brings together Hispanic doctoral students and is ecumenical, multi-ethnic, and multi-denominational. Students who participate in HTI represent a consortium of 18 academic institutions, including the Graduate Theological Union, Drew University and the University of Notre Dame. They come to Princeton at various phases of their doctoral and postdoctoral work in religion, Biblical studies, and theology. At Princeton, they take classes, attend workshops, and work with mentors and editors, but earn degrees from their home institutions. This year, nonprofit "Excelencia in Education" recognized HTI for its efforts to increase access and opportunity for Hispanics at the graduate level.
