which is appropriate for a Presbyterian.
Latini is her maiden name.
United Lutheran Seminary Names Presbyterian Theresa Latini As Its First President — Gettysburg Seminary:
"April 20, 2017 (Gettysburg and Philadelphia) The United Lutheran Seminary named the Rev. Dr. Theresa F. Latini as the first president to lead the unified Seminary with campuses at Gettysburg and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

President-elect Latini will officially begin July 1, 2017, which is also the inaugural date of United Lutheran Seminary (ULS), a consolidation of two historic Lutheran Seminaries in Gettysburg and Philadelphia. ULS is the oldest seminary of the 3.8 million-member Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA), dating to 1826. [GJ - ELCA started with 5.3 million members and has whittled that down to 3.8!]
The search for a seminary president was launched last fall following the decisions of Gettysburg Seminary President Michael Cooper-White to retire after 17 years of service, and President David Lose of The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, took a call to serve as senior pastor of Mount Olivet Lutheran Church, Minneapolis, MN."

The latest ELCA seminary presidents are -

The Berkeley seminary combined with a college, just as Southern did. Now Trinity in Columbus is merging with Capital University. Some additional documents are being handed to the ELCA Board of Directors, which suggests that similar adjustments are coming.
All the ELCA seminaries are financially distraught, no matter what the happy talk memos say. The leaders managed to shrink the ELCA faster than wool in boiling water, just in time for the brick and mortar investments of the past to become an expensive burden.

I went to Waterloo Lutheran Seminary
and have extensive experience as a Canadian bishop, eh?"
