Meadville Lombard warmly welcomes you to visit us, whether you are considering applying or have applied to the school, want to explore Unitarian Universalist history, or wish to learn more about the importance and distinction of a Unitarian Universalist seminary.

Attend a Prospective Student Conference

We host Prospective Student Conferences several times a year during Intensives, when our students are gathered at our Chicago campus for intensive classwork. These conferences are an excellent way to experience what it is like to be a student at Meadville Lombard.

At a Prospective Student Conference you can:
  • Connect with current students and meet other prospective students
  • Mingle with our staff and faculty, who include Unitarian Universalist powerhouses in ministry, teaching, academics, and activism
  • Learn more about the groundbreaking curriculum for our Master of Divinity and Master of Arts in Leadership Studies programs
  • Explore downtown Chicago and our beautiful campus

Take a Class as a Student at Large

Prospective students, students enrolled in Masters of Divinity programs at other seminaries, alums, and teaching pastors and mentors are warmly invited to take a class at Meadville Lombard and experience our learning model firsthand.

If you are a prospective student and cannot attend a Prospective Student Conference, we encourage you to take a class as a student at large during an Intensive.
