Harding School of Theology Student Association


Since its formation in 1967, the Student Association (SA) has become an essential means of fostering unity and fellowship among the student body. SA has close ties with the administration, nominating members for standing committees of the school and making recommendations concerning policy.

In addition to planning chapel and initiating various student activities, the SA sponsors four academic awards at graduation. The four awards are: the Jack P. Lewis Ministry of Study Award, the Academic Award, the Hebrew Award, and the Velma R. West Greek Award.

The SA publishes a student newsletter and coordinates informal athletic activities throughout the year. The SA also hosts banquets, devotionals, picnics and campus movies.

The SA officers for the 2022-2023 academic year are:
