Abigail Clauhs is currently a student at Claremont School of Theology, part of the interfaith institute Claremont Lincoln University, where she is pursuing an M.Div. with a concentration in Leadership in Social Justice Organizations.
She graduated with a B.A. from Boston University in May 2014, where she majored in religion and minored in
English. With a dedication to diversity and interfaith cooperation, Abigail led the Boston University Interfaith Council, where she coordinated discussions and interfaith service events among many Boston-area colleges. She cares deeply about fostering dialogue and understanding between people of various walks of life and worldviews.
In addition, she has a love for community service that has led her to teach classes to immigrants and refugees, rebuild homes after Hurricane Katrina, and volunteer with international seafarers in the port of her hometown in Charleston, South Carolina.
A longtime fondness for the written word inspired her to work with the Boston University Literary Society, where she was editor-in-chief for the literary journal Coup d’Etat, as well as to tutor at the Boston University Writing Center. In her spare time, she can often be found on a park bench with her notebook, scribbling poetry and generally looking like a pretentious hipster.
Abigail hopes to pursue ordination as a Unitarian Universalist community minister and to work in a career in the nonprofit/NGO world, doing interfaith humanitarian work.
