The Following Are the Most Immediate Needs in the Kingdom Diversity Effort:

Endowed Academic Chair :: $1.5 million
The primarily difficulty when diversifying a faculty is having an open teaching position and a qualified underrepresented candidate appear in the same discipline (i.e. philosophy, New Testament, etc.) at the same time. An endowed chair will provide the funds to help defray the cost of hiring a faculty member so Southeastern can hire a qualified underrepresented candidate at any time despite his or her area of specialization.

Ph.D. Fellowship :: $1 million
Sponsoring a PhD fellowship is an investment in the future of the Kingdom. Ph.D. graduates become influential authors, pastors, and faculty who will equip the next generations of ministers, counselors, professors and missionaries. The Ph.D. fellowship will cover the cost of tuition and living expenses for a doctoral student from an underrepresented demographic. A fellowship will be awarded to the most gifted students and will require the recipient to vocationally serve at Southeastern during their time as a student, and will require a stent on our faculty upon completion of their degree.

Students Scholarships
An important prerequisite of “fostering a campus environment that encourages God-honoring interaction across racial and cultural lines” is a diverse student population. Antidotal and census data reveals to us that people of color have lower income per household, thus fewer resources to spend on education. Giving to the student scholarships fund will add to monies that will reduce the financial strain of underrepresented undergraduate and master’s level students as they prepare for ministry.

Endowed Directorship :: $1.5 million
An endowed directorship will ensure the existence of a champion for Kingdom Diversity on the campus of Southeastern Seminary and The College at Southeastern. The current position is entitled Special Advisor to the President for Diversity, and is currently occupied by Walter R. Strickland II.
