Episcopal Divinity School (EDS) in Cambridge will cease to grant degrees at the end of the upcoming academic year, the seminary’s board of trustees decided July 21 on a 11-4 vote, according to an EDS news release. No faculty or staff members will be laid off during the upcoming academic year, and all students, including EDS’s final incoming class, which arrives on campus next month, will be “taught out.”  The Very Rev. Francis Fornaro, interim dean and president of EDS, announced after the vote that he would resign in mid-November.
