Teaching is the perpetual end and office of all things.  Teaching, instruction is the main design that shines through the sky and earth.

About Becoming an LUT

Many students, as they go through the Spiritual Education & Enrichment (SEE) courses, realize that they are being called into leadership.


One of the Unity leadership paths available through Unity Worldwide Ministries is the Licensed Unity Teacher (LUT) path.  (Canadian students follow the US credentialling path, not the International path.)

Please have a look through our FAQs below and then connect with Wendy Karr, Education Co-ordinator at courses@unitycanada.org

Course checklist for Licensed Unity Teachers can be downloaded here – check back for further updates as UWSI rolls out the new Education program!
