Founded in 1853, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary serves the church, the academy, and the world by preparing public theologians and scholars. We equip our students to proclaim the good news of the Gospel, to foster deep spirituality in the lives of others, to serve with cultural competence and commitment to racial equity, and to lead transformative change for the wellbeing of all persons and creation.
Located on the campus of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, Garrett-Evangelical offers rigorous, intellectually challenging academics paired with a commitment to intentional spiritual formation that trains the mind, body, and spirit. Through a diverse curriculum students are stretched theologically and exposed to new models of ministry that equips them for ministry in the 21st century.
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is a graduate theological school that prepares skilled, bold and articulate leaders who share the transforming love of Jesus Christ. Related to the United Methodist Church, with an ecumenical and international reach, we prepare leaders who are equipped to live and proclaim the Gospel and to teach in diverse congregations and educational settings. Our teaching and learning settings will be places of hospitality where we pursue respect and reconciliation in all encounters.

The Green Seminary Initiative at Garrett-Evangelical
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is committed to integrating ecological perspectives and sustainable practices throughout the curriculum, worship and spiritual life, programming, buildings and grounds, and administrative operations of the seminary.
Under the direction of Rev. Dr. Timothy Eberhart, Assistant Professor of Theology and Ecology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary has been chosen by the Green Seminary Initiative (GSI) for the Seminary Environmental Certification Program. A three-year program, this certification will assist Garrett-Evangelical as it integrates care for creation into areas of education and spiritual formation; liturgy, ritual, and worship; building and grounds management; community life; and public leadership. GSI and a team of experts will provide Garrett-Evangelical coaching and a host of resources, including an energy audit, over the duration of the program.
