There are several Student Advocacy Groups at McCormick and together they are an important part of the spiritual formation of students and the transformation of the McCormick community.
In recent years, several groups have addressed special needs and concerns of the McCormick community. They offer resources and challenges to the whole Seminary through forums and other events. Often they coordinate their energies among themselves and with Student Session and the other bodies of the Seminary on specific issues.
The Student Session is committed to providing support and basic funding for Student Advocacy Groups. While involvement usually fluctuates with each the graduation and student turnover, most Advocacy Groups are active throughout the year. Students who wish to develop an official Student Advocacy Group revolving around a particular issue or concern are welcome and encouraged to do so. For more information on joining or starting a group, please e-mail the Session at firstname.lastname@example.org .
