Official Full Name
Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary is a school of mergers and as our seminary has evolved so too has its name. Please use the full name—Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary—on first mention in publications, the web, and in any situation where it is not immediately obvious that you’re referring to the seminary.
Official Abbreviated Name
In communication on behalf of the seminary (internally or externally focused) we will refer to the seminary's entire name the first time it appears: “Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary.” Thereafter, we will simply say or write, “Garrett.”
THE EXCEPTION: In communications to our alum base we will continue to use “Garrett-Evangelical” as the primary abbreviation. This also means that when addressing our alums, either on campus or in the field, we will be mindful and sensitive to refer to the seminary as “Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary” or “Garrett-Evangelical.”
Avoid using the "G-ETS" abbreviation. The initial abbreviation is too generic to identify us and often too casual to represent our seminary. The only exception to this rule is when referring to the alum's school (GBI, ETS, GTS, or G-ETS) and their graduation year. For example, "Shane A. Nichols (G-ETS 2002)."
Social Media Abbreviation
In an effort to minimize character counts, the Office of Marketing and Communications uses the handle "GarrettSeminary" to identify the seminary on social media platforms. This abbreviation of the seminary is reserved only for the Office of Marketing and Communications and should not be used in print or web.
