Princeton Theological Seminary’s Center for Theology, Women, and Gender (CTWG) was established to address issues related to the intersections of race, class, gender identity, and sexuality in church and society. The idea for the Center grew out of the Seminary’s longstanding commitment to redress inequalities at the Seminary, in the church, and in the world. Scripture testifies that God desires a world in which all persons, regardless of race, class, gender, or disabilities, are able to flourish and live the abundant life, a promise which stands at the heart of the gospel.
Through conferences, coursework, and events, the Center shapes students, alumni, and church leaders to be change agents regarding the pressing issues of inequality facing our world. Students can also choose to focus their coursework and earn a Certificate in Theology, Women, and Gender. The certificate program prepares students for ministry in churches, prisons, hospitals, college campuses, and other nonprofit organizations.
The Center for Theology, Women, and Gender is also home to the Women in Ministry Initiative (WIM) and two student groups—the Women’s Center, and BGLASS (Bisexual, Gay, Lesbian, and Straight Supporters).
