Our programming rests on two central pillars: Religious Literacy and the Professions, and Religion, Conflict, and Peace. These pillars offer distinctive programming within a wider canopy of offerings designed to support dynamic communities of scholars, teachers, practitioners, and students committed to deepening the public understanding of religion to build a just world at peace.
