2022–2023 Colloquium Schedule

All sessions are held Wednesday afternoons, 3:30-5:00pm, in the Great Hall (N100) in Sterling Divinity Quad, unless otherwise noted.

Attendance Policy

All ISM students are required to attend and participate fully in the weekly colloquium to receive credit each semester. Requests for an excused absence due to a professional obligation must be submitted in advance to Kristen Forman for approval by Martin Jean. Students are generally allowed one approved absence per semester, not including religious holidays. Absences due to illness should also be reported to kristen.forman@yale.edu prior to the Colloquium session if at all possible. Students with more than one excused absence will not receive credit for that semester, and thus not be eligible for the ISM certificate.
