Consortium Member Classes

Due to the Delta variant of COVID19 all Consortium classes are cancelled until November 1st.

During the 2021-2022 academic year we look forward to course offerings hosted by United Lutheran Seminary, Lexington Theological Seminary, and Catholic Committee of Appalachia.

COVID has made its way into rural Appalachia where the population is older and generally less healthy than the rest of the country. According to the Appalachian Regional Commission, rates of chronic lung disease are 27 percent higher in Appalachia than in the nation as a whole. We will post class listings as soon as COVID-19 precautions allow immersion courses.
