Community Life







1892 Club


The 1892 Club provides a dedicated space and time to develop relationships and mentorships through a formal program and open times for fellowship for all current PhD students at SBTS, across all schools, departments, and stages of the program, in addition to all professors. If you are in one of these groups, you’re already a member of the 1892 Club!

The club meets most Wednesday afternoons during term time:

Wednesdays from 1:00 – 2:15 PM

The club focuses primarily on creating opportunities to hear from professors, visiting scholars, students, and others about topics relevant to our PhD community (Norton 206).
