New Brunswick Theological Seminary is one of several seminaries participating in the nationwide effort to provide theological training specifically designed for Hispanic students. We actively support the Hispanic Summer Program which offers courses in both Spanish and English. Our yearly support includes contributions, advocating for our students to attend the summer classes, and sending faculty to the non-Hispanic faculty training program. These programs are coordinated yearly. Our Hispanic presence is steadily growing.

The Hispanic Summer Program (HSP) provides graduate-level theological education and the opportunity for students to study with Latina/o peers and professors. Each summer, the HSP brings together nearly 85 participants from the U.S. and Puerto Rico, representing a wide variety of traditions, denominations, and theological perspectives. The HSP also provides a limited number of slots for Latina/o pastors seeking continuing theological education.
The HSP is designed primarily for Latina/o students enrolled in theological seminaries and university departments of theology or religion. We have also welcomed about 10% of non-Latina/o students nationwide who are involved in Latino-centered ministries and advocacy.
