Drawing upon religious traditions, spiritual pathways and indigenous wisdom, the Religica Theolab also works alongside local to international allies to create new ways of communicating the strongest values within these traditions. We work with the United Nations Environment Program, Councils of Churches in the world, the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Church World Service, and additional NGOs. We endeavor alongside ecumenical partners toward achieving shared aims.”
Aligned to SU Strategic goals, we are reimagining, revising, strengthening, enhancing, and repositioning for growth. Our purpose is where mission and vision meet every day.
CEIE is guided by the Ignatian commitment to religious literacy (General Congregation 34), where the joy of learning includes our whole humanity across all disciplines!
The Center develops resources with a diversity of perspectives around challenges we face today in society. Every resource we create is shared across a robust social media platform and then poured into curriculum for use in classrooms and your community. We believe this is the best of constructive, public theology – to be alert, ready and responsive.
