The School of Applied Theology (SAT), founded at the University of San Francisco (USF), in 1960, as the Institute of Lay Theology (ILT), invites you to join us in thanksgiving for our five-decade legacy as an affiliate of the Graduate Theological Union (GTU) and of providing quality, holistic renewal/sabbatical programs to laity, clergy, men and women religious. We look forward in hope as the mission continues tthrough the JST Renewal Program, at the Jesuit School of Theology-Santa Clara University (JST-SCU), in Berkeley. 

We hope you will enjoy our archives and Sabbatical resources on this website through December 2018!
