Scott Williamson, Louisville Presbyterian Seminary

Scott C. Williamson, a New York City native, joined the Louisville Seminary faculty in 1997 to teach theological ethics. Reflecting on that first year, Williamson jokes that he had to be “the least expensive faculty hire” in Louisville Seminary history, costing the seminary only $420 to ship his belongings to Louisville, Kentucky, from Hamden, Connecticut. In addition to humor, a penchant for storytelling in teaching and a talent for building community, Williamson also brought a passion for social justice. This passion has shaped his research interests, service to the seminary community, and civic commitment.
