Church Relations

Shaw University’s rich heritage is rooted in the Baptist Church. The Shaw University Divinity School remains a central pillar in the university’s connection to the church community. Through valued and trusted partnerships, we celebrate the many sacred institutions and leaders who support and inspire us.

Shaw Days

Since Shaw University’s founding, the institution has continued to celebrate its connection with the Baptist Church. In recent history, "Shaw Day" observances have been established and held annually at partner churches in efforts to showcase the Shaw University product by demonstrating how the support of partner churches and its membership has contributed to the overall success of the institution and its students. Shaw Day is also an opportunity for churches and members to recommit their support through financial gifts as well as the through the offering of volunteer services in the area of student recruitment, fundraising, mentorship and community advocacy work on behalf of Shaw University.

Join the ranks of visionaries who support Shaw University’s mission and host a Shaw Day event at your church or organization.
