The Unitarian Universalist Collegium is a membership association of ordained and lay scholars. Collegium offers religious scholars an opportunity to share their research and to develop collegial relationships. By design, it caters to the unique requirements of college students, doctoral and post-doctoral students, professors, scholar-ministers and independent scholars. 

Community Building

Every year Collegium hosts an annual meeting to encourage in-depth conversations about theological, ethical, and historical topics of interest to Unitarian Universalists and other liberal religionists. Learning and sharing take place in plenary sessions featuring a guest speaker, presentations, Q&A sessions, worship services, communal meals, and social time. These academic and networking components foster community building and knowledge development.
