Community Partnerships and Collaborations

The School of Divinity partners with local and national organizations and community efforts to create opportunities for mutual learning and critical dialogue, including student internships and various forms of mentoring, consultation, community education, and shared advocacy.

Interfaith Winston-Salem

A tax-exempt nonprofit organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, Interfaith Winston-Salem is an all-volunteer educational group that brings together members of many faith traditions – religious and non-religious – to gain a greater understanding of and respect for each other’s traditions.  As we better understand other traditions, we hope to develop a deeper appreciation for our own that will manifest itself in active goodwill to other individuals and to the community as a whole.



The Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation

Seeking to improve the lives of individuals and communities by helping meet the basic needs of nutrition and educational opportunity, The Corella and Bertram F. Bonner Foundation is a small family funded foundation and nonprofit organization. Our work and approach are not conventional. Rather than focus on short-term initiatives and grants for individual projects, we work as a national network and community of practice to advance higher education through its engagement within communities. Since 1990, we have built and sustained partnerships with colleges and universities to foster the deep integration of college access, diversity and inclusion, and student success with community engagement and learning. We see ourselves as an organization that provides research and development for the civic engagement field, in ways that promote its depth, sustainability, and value to colleges and communities.



Hispanic Summer Program

Training Leaders for the Hispanic Church, the Hispanic Summer Program supplements and enriches the theological and ministerial education being offered in ATS seminaries and universities, with academic courses and other activities directly addressing Latinx history, ministry, and theology. As an ecumenical program, it seeks to heal the divisions in the Latinx community fueled by denominational and theological differences. As a Latinx program, the HSP tries to find ways to restore connections and build bridges between Latinx and non-Latinx – among others by enhancing the awareness and appreciation that non-Latinx scholars, ministers, and administrators have of Latinx contributions to the past, present, and future of our churches and our nation.
