200 years of troubling the waters.
Helping leaders of faith and moral courage to heal the world.

We are a seminary
for the 21st century

Auburn equips leaders with the organizational skills and spiritual resilience required to create lasting, positive impact in local communities, on the national stage, and around the world.

We amplify voices and visions of faith and moral courage. We convene diverse leaders and cross-sector organizations for generative collaboration and multifaith understanding. And we research what’s working — and not — in theological education and social change-making.


Because we believe a more just and compassionate world is possible.

By reaching out  across lines of religion, politics, age, ability, race, gender, class, power and privilege we can create lasting solutions to the spiritual and social challenges of our time.
