Two of Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary’s faculty, both from the field of pastoral care and counseling, have been selected to participate in year-long cohorts for theological educators, referred to as digital salons, at the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology. Rev. Dr. Trina Armstrong, assistant professor of pastoral theology and pastoral care, will participate in salon one, focusing on mid-career African American faculty. Dr. Rolf Nolasco, professor of pastoral theology, will join salon five, looking at ways to engage imagination as theological educators.

Taurean J. Webb, director of the Center for the Church and the Black Experience (CBE) and instructor of religion and race at Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, was named a 2020-2021 non-resident fellow in the Religion, Conflict, and Peace Initiative (RCPI) at Harvard Divinity School. In addition to supporting his scholarship and integrating him into the intellectual life of the RCPI, the program has also commissioned Webb to produce a visual arts exhibition, featuring the works of African- and Arab- descended artists.
