The Southeastern Visiting Scholars Program
The Visiting Scholars Program at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary is designed to provide a warm and hospitable working environment for evangelical scholars who wish to take a sabbatical or embark upon an extended study leave at our campus in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Together, Southeastern’s faculty and administration view this program as an opportunity to build friendships with visiting scholars, to enrich and support their academic research and writing, and to learn from them.

The Southeastern Visiting Scholars Program is for professors who teach in a discipline that complements the mission and vision of Southeastern Seminary.
