Chicago Theological Seminary’s 2019 Commencement introduced a new cohort of dynamic religious scholars, activists, and community leaders. Commencement activities took place at 2pm on May 17 at Trinity United Church of Christ on Chicago’s South Side. The ceremony celebrated the achievements of the class of 2018 and featured President Emerita and Professor Emerita Susan B. Thistlethwaite as the speaker and Crate & Barrel co-founder and CTS trustee Carole Browe Segal as the honorary degree recipient.
