Bexley Hall closes Rochester campus

The Living Church reports that Bexley Hall, one of the eleven accredited Episcopal seminaries in the US, is closing their Rochester, NY, campus and concentrating their M.Div. program at their site in Columbus, Ohio.

The class of seminary students graduating in May will be the last for Bexley Hall Seminary’s Rochester, N.Y., campus which will be closed. Bexley Hall remains committed to a three-year residential seminary program at its Columbus, Ohio campus, according to the Very Rev. John R. Kevern, dean of Bexley Hall.

The decision to close the Rochester campus was based in part on changing demographics, Dean Kevern told The Living Church. Another factor was the more stringent standards the Rochester campus would have to meet when its accreditation from the Association of Theological Schools came up for renewal in 2012.
