Harvard Divinity School, the nation's first nonsectarian theological school, celebrated its bicentennial during the 2016–17 academic year with events and exhibits that highlight the School's mission to illuminate, engage, and serve the world through the pursuit and practice of religious literacy.

“For two centuries HDS has advanced the study of religion and empowered men and women to serve others around the world,” said HDS Dean David N. Hempton. “The bicentennial will allow us to reflect on this rich history, even as we envision anew the School's mission for the future.”
