For Tiffany Steinwert, helping students wrestle with existential questions such as these is an extremely rewarding — and challenging — part of her new job as Dean of Religious Life at Wellesley College. Trained as a practical theologian and an Elder in the United Methodist Church, Steinwert has dedicated her career to fostering spiritual formation and collective action in diverse communities, par- ticularly on college campuses. She earned her BA degree in psychology and women's studies from Williams College, a Master of Divinity degree from Boston University School of Theology, and a PhD in Practical Theology from Boston University. She has served as a pastor in New England congregations, as a national organizer for diverse social justice organizations, and as a teach- ing fellow at Boston University and Harvard Kennedy School leading courses in theology, community organizing, and leadership. She is deeply committed to issues of social justice and sees her faith as an integral part of this work. 90 W e l l e s l e y W e s t o n M a g a z i n e | s p r i n g 2 0 1 6 Our Religous Leaders "We can all think about what we need to let go of and how to declutter our souls to receive divine light." – T i f f a n y S t e i n w e r t , P h D
