Congratulations to Dr. Burrus on being named the Graduate Theological Union's Alumna of the year.

In announcing Dr. Burrus’s selection, GTU Academic Dean Uriah Y. Kim said, “Virginia Burrus is a first-rate thinker whose amazing array of writings, courses, and public lectures powerfully and provocatively communicate her passion and commitment to making ancient texts and insights relevant to contemporary issues. Her scholarship embodies who she is and what she cares about. She is indeed one of the GTU's most distinguished alums today.” 

Dr. Burrus will be honored by the GTU on Saturday, November 18, 2017, at 8:00 pm at the GTU Alumni Reception during the annual meetings of the American Academy of Religion and Society of Biblical Literature in Boston. All GTU alumni and friends are invited.
