The Harvey Lectures were conceived at Seminary of the Southwest as a way of honoring the late Dean Harvey, who died unexpectedly in 1972, after serving as the seminary’s Dean for just 5 years.Kim Jackson GA Leg

During Dean Harvey’s tenure, following some institutional turbulence during the 1960’s,  the seminary had begun rebuilding in terms of enrollment, financial strength, and earning back the trust of many diocese through the church.

The seminary community established the Harvey Lectures, an annual series that would be overseen by student leaders, and that would address the relationship between pastoral leadership and contemporary issues confronting the church.

Over the years, these Lectures have become a lasting and vital resource for the seminary, bringing important and diverse theological voices to our seminary campus.
