As the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) reaches its 40th year, faculty and staff are preparing for an unprecedented, three-day event to mark this milestone. That includes graduation of undergraduate as well as graduate students, a reception, a thinkers’ conference for alumni on Sunday and Monday, a documentary slide show, and an open discussion with President Hugh Spurgin– all at the Barrytown campus where the Founder began the school in September 1975.

A visitor to the chapel of the Unification Theological Seminary (UTS) in Barrytown today will open the door, and the first thing that hits him or her will be the light. His or her eyes will be drawn to shafts of light streaming down from 16 brand new, double-paned, tinted, argon-gas filled, segmented windows.

Paul StuppleMr. Paul Stupple has been appointed as Chief Operations Officer. Paul is a native of the mid-Hudson Valley, having grown up in Milton, near Poughkeepsie. His career, however, has taken him everywhere but this area, including Cairo, Egypt, where he served for 12 years in educational administration as well as with the Middle East Times, Moscow, where he was program coordinator for the International Educational Foundation, and Suriname and Costa Rica, where he with his wife Barbara established missionary churches.

Mr. Stupple will oversee financial and facilities management, and guide the development of IT support, conference services and business planning. His ability to speak in six languages will assist his service to UTS’s international student body.
