Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School is a theological college of Baptist origins. The present day school, which sits on the top of a hill in the beautiful setting of Highland Park in Rochester, New York is a product of several mergers.
The school is progressive and ecumenical in theology, with Baptists, United Methodists, Presbyterians and members of other denominations on its faculty and in its student body. The school shares partnerships with General Theological Seminary in New York City, an Episcopal Church seminary, and St. Bernard's School of Theology and Ministry, a Roman Catholic theological school which shared its facilities from 1981 until 2003, and since has moved to a nearby site.
It is a small school with seven full-time faculty and 14 part-time faculty, and slightly more than 100 full-time students. The current president is the Rev. Dr. Marvin A. McMickle, who was previously the pastor at Antioch Baptist Church in Cleveland, Ohio.
The campus is also home to the graduate studies Physical Therapy program for Ithaca College. It contains the Center for Foot and Ankle Research and a movement analysis lab.
