Virtual and Face-to-Face Recruitment Events for Perkins Prospective Students

By Rev. Margot Perez-Greene, Ph.D.

We are full into the recruitment phase, engaging prospective student for Fall 2022! I am pleased to share the activities for engaging with prospective students beginning mid-January. Included in each of these events is the opportunity to meet and converse with current students, faculty, and Office of Enrollment Management staff. Topics are diverse in nature from discerning a call to ministry to facts about admission and financial aid.

Our hope is that Perkins Perspective readers will share this information with your churches, agencies, organizations, and all of those you have mentored on the path to vocational or lay ministry. It is our promise to attend to those you send our way with a full commitment of integrity and respect.

Please be in prayer for Perkins School of Theology, its students, faculty, staff, and dean.

Happy New Year from the Office of Enrollment Management!

Margot

Make a Connection with the Recruitment and Admission Team at Perkins

We like to put a face to a name when possible so that we can get to know you better. We want you to get to know us better, too, and will provide contact information for future communication. We’ve asked a current student to join the Zoom call to share their personal Perkins experience with our staff as they were nurtured and onboarded from their initial inquiry to enrollment. Come and join us for this very informal time of getting to know each other.
