Eleanor Wilson Chair

The seminary shares with Bethany Lutheran College the services of the professor occupying the Eleanor Wilson Chair of Speech/English Communication. The terms of the endowment specify that a portion of the chairholder’s time, usually from a fourth to a third, be devoted to training seminary students in communication skills. This involves classroom instruction as well as sermon critique. The seminary recognizes the value of good communication skills in today’s church work and makes cultivation of this art a priority.


*=The degree awarded was BD or Candidate of  Theology. Today this degree is called the MDiv.
