Aware is published quarterly by the development office for alums and friends of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary.

Latest Issue: Summer 2022


On Friday, May 13, 2022, members of the Class of 2022, their family and friends, and Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary’s faculty, staff, and trustees gathered in Northwestern University’s Alice Millar Chapel to celebrate the seminary’s 165th Commencement. The seminary also welcomed members of the Classes of 2020 and 2021, who were invited back to campus to participate in this year’s commencement service, the first in-person ceremony in two years.


This time of celebration is captured throughout the pages of the Summer issue of Aware magazine. Highlights include an honorary degree awarded to our commencement speaker, Bree Newsome Bass, two new distinguished alums, the honoring of President Emerita Lallene J. Rector and her 37 years of service, and the awarding of degrees to our newest alumni, the Class of 2022.


In this issue you’ll hear from eleven members of the Class of 2022, who each share highlights and transformative experiences from their time at Garrett-Evangelical. Despite these unprecedented times, the Class of 2022 not only rose to the challenge but flourished. We commend them on their fine work and their future ministries, and in them, we place our hopes, aspirations, and dreams for a better and more peaceful and more just world.
