The United Methodist Higher Education Foundation invites you to a virtual homecoming celebration!

Follow throughout the day on

Many schools will be celebrating their connections this fall and we’re excited to take part in the fun on Tuesday, October 27 beginning at 10:00 AM Central. Join us throughout the day for an online celebration as we spotlight many of our students and United Methodist partners.

UMHEF awards more than $2.3 million in scholarships every year to United Methodist students attending UM-related colleges, universities, and seminaries. This amazing ministry is not possible without the generous support of our community of donors. As we celebrate together this fall, we hope you will be inspired to give and make a real difference in the lives of students that will impact their lives as well as our communities and churches for generations to come!

Grab a cup of coffee or lunch (depending on where you’re watching from!) and log on at 12:00 PM Central to hear the Rev. Dr. Jeffrey Kuan deliver an impactful discussion on The Legacy of Methodist Higher Education: Looking Back and Forward:

Higher education is a sector under stress, compounded even more by the COVID-19 pandemic. Methodist-related institutions are not exempt from such stresses. In such a challenging climate, Kuan will speak to the legacy of Methodist higher education, looking backward and forward, and what the role the church needs to play to continue to support higher education and nurture future leaders for the church and the world.
