The end of the 2015-16 school year marked my first full academic year as the President of Pacific School of Religion. What has been most rewarding for me has been meeting students and alumni/ae who, through their work and ministries, embody PSR’s mission of preparing bold leaders for social change in congregations and communities.

From the classroom to the pulpit to the streets, our students demonstrate their dedication to issues of justice. This past year, students were involved in Black Lives Matter protests in Ferguson and acted in solidarity at Standing Rock; they participated in immersion trips to the Middle East, Guatemala, France, and Mexico. Locally, our students and alumni/ae continue to stand on the frontline of grassroots organizing efforts to address the housing crisis, homelessness, environmental justice, violence, and much more. And our alumni/ae continue to serve as leaders in congregations and throughout their respective denominations, making a significant impact on the communities they serve.

In the 2015-2016, thanks to the generous support of donors like you, we exceeded our annual fund goal by 39%! We continue our commitment to good stewardship of our resources by strengthening our current programming and expanding our reach to prepare spiritually rooted leaders for social transformation.

We deeply appreciate the continued trust that individuals, foundations, and congregations place in our institution. I remain grateful for the honor of leading PSR into its 150th year of progressive theological education. This annual report expresses both our appreciation of our alumni/ae, donors, faculty and staff, and our confidence in the future of the institution.

Rev. Dr. David Vásquez-Levy
