The Reverend Doctor Streets is senior pastor of the Church of Christ in Yale, acting master of Trumbull College, and a clinical social worker at the Yale Child Study Center. His research, publication, and teaching interests are in pastoral theology, institutional leadership and development, law and religion, and social welfare. He has been engaged in issues affecting both troubled regions of the world and New Haven. As a consultant to the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma and in conjunction with the mental health community of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Streets helped implement a model for the psychiatric and pastoral care of Bosnian citizens who were traumatized by war. He has also traveled to Colombia, South America, to promote peace-making there and to Buenos Aires, Argentina, as part of an effort to foster a greater understanding of the nonprofit sector’s relationship to higher education. Closer to home, Streets has been a member of the New Haven Board of Police Commissioners for the past six years, is co-chair of the Ward One Democratic Town Committee, and was a delegate to the first world conference of religious leaders ever to convene at the United Nations. Prior to coming to Yale, he was senior pastor of the Mount Aery Baptist Church in Bridgeport, Connecticut, for 17 years.
