Princeton Seminary, like Duke Divinity School, has no out gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, queer expressing or questioning person--let alone people--on the faculty. David Wall is the one administrators who self-identifies as gay.

So when will we see faculty initiatives that promote the hiring of LGBTQ people at seminaries and universities and colleges, like there have been African American Faculty Initiatives, e.g., Duke, and for women?

Not holding my breath, but wondering...

Pace!

Considering Duke is a UMC seminary and the UMC Discipline states "The practice of homosexuality is incompatible with Christian teaching" a concerted push for such affirmative action is doubtful anytime soon. Further, the new dean's position on the issue probably isn't encouraging towards such a movement either:
