Mission Statement

The purpose of the Student Assembly is: (1) to represent the students and their interests within the seminary community; (2) to facilitate communication and interaction among the students, administration, faculty, and staff of Palmer Theological Seminary and Eastern University; and (3) to nurture a spirit of koinonia (fellowship) that enriches the experience at the Seminary and serves as a model for future leaders in Christian ministry.
