Especially gratifying for us at the World Council of Churches is the fully ecumenical and catholic spirit that has animated the divinity school from its beginnings,” wrote Pillay. Ecumenical theological education demands and nurtures a true openness to learning from each other and from the many historical and contemporary religious traditions represented in society.”

He also expressed appreciation for the school's clarity of purpose, adding that serving the churches, fellow Christians, and the larger society—firmly anchors your programme.”

Pillay added: It resides in and contributes simultaneously to the tradition of the academic study of religion, to the centuries-old Christian tradition of disciplined theological reflection, and to the equally longstanding and vital tradition of preparing a learned and caring clergy.”
