We’re very pleased to share the following article from the May issue of the Yale Daily News Magazine, which celebrates our founders and directors, Mary Evelyn Tucker and John Grim, and their years of work in the joint degree program between Yale Divinity School and the Yale School of the Environment.
“Profile: The Walk Along Prospect Street” provides a brief history of the joint MA and Mary Evelyn and John’s many contributions to its growth and development. It also provides a unique window into the weaving of the spiritual and scientific that is the lived experience of this program, through insights from program graduates. The work of the Forum is also lifted up as an important piece of this culture of interdisciplinary effort towards the common goal of protecting our planet.
Note: you can also listen to the article using the player at the top of the page, and you can read the full magazine issue with graphics, here.

The staff at the Forum honors Mary Evelyn and John for their years of devotion and dedication to this work and to the many students they have stewarded and lovingly guided through the years.
