The Seminary Administration enables and assures the proper personal, spiritual, educational and professional formation of future leaders and servants of the Orthodox Church, both in North America and across the world, in fidelity to Orthodox Christian tradition, and in sober attentiveness to contemporary realities. Together with the Seminary faculty, the administration facilitates a dynamic and focused learning and teaching process within a spiritually nurturing and academically challenging environment; ethically and equitably manages human, informational, financial and physical resources; and maintains integrity in all aspects of institutional ethos and life.
