Insights from Dean Townes
Dear alumni/ae and friends,
We proudly welcomed 64 Divinity and 14 Graduate Department of Religion graduates into the Vanderbilt alumni/ae family with hugs and cheers during an especially beautiful Commencement day on Alumni Lawn and inside Benton Chapel.
Twenty-one of our students earned certificates in the Carpenter Program in Religion, Gender, and Sexuality; the Kelly Miller Smith Institute on Black Church Studies; and Religion in the Arts and Contemporary Culture.
In addition, the Student Government Association honored Shakiya LaVonne Canty, MDiv’16; Sha’Tika Brown, program and events coordinator; and David Michelson, assistant professor of the history of Christianity; for their service to the Divinity community. Please check Instagram to see additional Commencement photos.
