The EDS Board decision: a reply from the Alumni/ae Executive Committee

The Alumni/ae Executive Committee has replied to the decision by the Episcopal Divinity School Board of Trustees:

We’re not saying things can go on as they are (even though the draw on the endowment has been steadily coming down), but are asking for time to explore some really interesting possibilities for partnerships or mergers with other institutions that will allow EDS to continue to have a voice in the Episcopal Church. Shutting down the degree granting at this point effectively shuts down EDS’s ability to offer itself as a viable partner. (Karen Meridith, Executive Committee member)
