Andover Newton Will Partner With Yale Divinity

May 16, 2016

Andover Newton Theological School, the oldest theological school and graduate institution in the United States, announced last week that it will form a partnership with the Yale University Divinity School. Andover Newton, located outside of Boston, has faced financial challenges, and many theological schools have struggled to make their programs affordable. Andover Newton will continue to provide some instruction in Massachusetts but will start the process of relocating to Yale's New Haven, Conn., home while finishing negotiations on plans to become part of the divinity school there, as a unit to be called Andover Newton at Yale. Officials said the combination would help both institutions offer more aid to students with financial need.
