We cannot truly love what we do not know rightly. Everything we do in Lee’s Theology department revolves around that principle. Our highly trained faculty are deeply committed to the Lordship of Christ and life in the church. Our low student-teacher ratio means that our students receive a high level of care, attention, and mentorship inside and outside of the classroom. Students who study with us acquire the vocabulary to express and explain their beliefs and religious experiences, which are continually enriched through living and learning together.

She has been especially appreciative of her professors and peers in the School of Religion and “their strength, resilience, and goodness.” She is the president of the Theta Alpha Kappa honors society, a member of Phi Eta Sigma, a peer leader, a McNair Scholar, and a student worker in the School of Religion.
